In-Seine is an incorporated non-profit in the State of Minnesota formed in April 2015.
Mission Statement: We are a faith-based organization that seeks to work with at-risk communities to develop sustainable fish farming systems based on the local contexts.
Where possible we will seek to take an integrated farming approach that also incorporates other types of livestock, fruit, vegetable and nut production into the food production system to provide for the total dietary needs of the community.
About In-Seine's founder:
Randall Bevis, director of In-Seine, has worked in aquaculture for over 20 years.
He received his Masters Degree in the field of aquaculture from the Asian Institute of Technology in Bangkok, Thailand in 1994.
Randy has spent most of the last 20 years working in Thailand. He helped set up a tilapia hatchery in 1998 that now has three sites, employs 40 people, and produces over 2 million tilapia fry (both wild color and red tilapia). These tilapia go to fish farmers in northern Thailand and are grown out to market sized tilapia of 500 g to 1 kg.
Randy has also helped set up hatcheries in Bangladesh, Laos and Malaysia during his years in Thailand. He enjoys traveling and helping partners to think creatively to come up with workable fish production models based on each unique situation. While much of Randy's focus has been on hatchery systems for tilapia, he also has done research on grow out systems in ponds and cages and recently has been involved with more intensive recirculating systems.
His family in now based out of their home state of Minnesota. Randy travels to various countries to assist partners in aquaculture projects. See the Project tab for the list of countries.
