Manatee Holdings Ltd. places No. 180th on The Globe and Mail’s brand-new ranking of Canada’s Top 400 Growing Companies

Courtenay, BC- Manatee Holdings Ltd. is pleased to announce it placed No. 180th on the inaugural Report on Business ranking of Canada’s Top 400 Growing Companies.

Lourdes & Eric Gant, co-owners commented:  “Manatee Holdings Ltd. came into existence in 1988 with seed financing of $2,000.00.  The company is now offering for up to 10% equity to investors for up to $5Million.  More importantly, In 1988, our company realized that the ocean was going the way of the land and fishing companies needed to become aware that the time has come to shift from hunting to ranching the sea.  We are proud of the fact, our company spear headed the creation of a new industry which is now evolving towards a sustainable, food production industry that in time will produce over a billion dollars a year in a way that will be beneficial to the surrounding ecology rather than detrimental.”
