SHANNON LIM, DIRECTOR
Shannon Lim, Founder and Managing Director, started OnHand Agrarian, out of a desire to make seafood cheaper and more sustainable with back-to-basics science, without disrupting the marine ecosystem. While analysing market trends as a financial planner, he predicted a shortage of fertilisers. From there, he was determined to find a way of farming without fertilisers. He designed OnHand's unique Integrated Multi-Trophic Recirculating Aquaculture System (IMTRAS) which recycles waste from one organism as food for another.
As OnHand's resident kelong-man, Marcus goes out to sea to trap fish and harvest mussels, and then delivers fresh seafood to our subscribers all over the country. In his free time, he scavenges for scraps of land to grow vegetables on and conceptualises floating mangrove structures. He is also mother to three ungrateful ducks. Before starting at OnHand, Marcus spent close to half a year working on organic farms across Japan.
