FirstWave Group is Africa's leading aquaculture firm. We have built and operate a vertically-integrated group of companies across the production, distribution and retail of fish and aquafeed in Southern and Eastern Africa. With headquarters in Amsterdam and Johannesburg, we have 1,000 dedicated team-members across Zambia, Uganda, Kenya, South Africa and Europe. Our purpose is to sustainably provide an abundant supply of affordable protein to the growing African markets.
Aquaculture & Processing
FirstWave sustainably produces tilapia fish in the pristine open waters of Lake Kariba and Lake Victoria. Our fish are a low-fat nutrient-rich source of protein, vitamins & micronutrients, a great source of food-security for the growing populations of Southern & Eastern Africa. A robust environmental management system promotes a positive relationship with our environment and in particular the lakes on which we operate. FirstWave produces both fresh ‘whole round’ and ‘gutted & scaled’ fish for the broader market, alongside processed and retail-packaged products to serve the modern trade sector.
