Forever Oceans is poised to do just that. U.S. consumer purchases of seafood grew over 30 percent since 2019, and their demand for high quality, delicious and sustainable seafood will continue to grow.

Bien succeeds Forever Oceans founder Jason Heckathorn who will continue to serve on the company's board of directors and as its Chief Sustainability Officer. 

Bien has served globally as an executive leader for startups and market leading enterprises in the ag-tech, clean-tech, and high-tech sectors. Most recently, he was the CEO of Signify's Agricultural Lighting division, where he grew a global business that provided lighting systems, software, and products to greenhouse growers, vertical farmers, livestock farmers, and aquaculture companies.  Previously, he served as Signify's overall Chief Marketing Officer and Chief Strategy Officer and led the company's achievement of its 100% carbon neutrality strategy for which the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and the United Nations recognized Signify as one of the world's leading sustainability companies.

 "Forever Oceans is pioneering a new ocean-raised market by offering highly nutritious fish that will meet the world's increasing demand for fish protein while also preserving our oceans and the environment," Bien says. "Forever Oceans' unique ocean-raised production and management technologies will enable us to quickly build a market leading position. I look forward to working with the team to achieve our full potential as a market leader in aquaculture innovation."
