Brian O’Hanlon
Open Ocean Aquaculture Pioneer
Snapperfarm Culebra, Puerto Rico

Brian O’Hanlon has had a love for the sea since the day he was born.  At a very young age he set out to determine and develop sustainable means of high quality seafood production. O’Hanlon represents the third generation of his family in the seafood business. The grandson of John O’Hanlon, who got his start in the seafood business in the 1950’s working at the now-defunct Fulton Fish Market, Brian O’Hanlon founded Snapperfarm in 1997 as a research project focusing on the hatchery production of Red Snapper.

In 2002, after years of an intense permit process, he deployed its first two submerged cages off the coast of Culebra, Puerto Rico, and became the nation’s second private open ocean aquaculture operation. Since then Brian has been working passionately to produce high quality, healthy and environmentally responsible seafood products. O’Hanlon has dedicated his career to the responsible development of open ocean aquaculture.
