My mission is to farm raise the highest quality fish in the world. I developed the most advanced indoor aquaculture facility that uses newest and highest efficiency equipment available today. Sustainability and environmental impact are the key in my engineering. I am leveraging my technology and my experience to create the new age of fish farming. I believe in true transparency, and I will be as transparent from my broodstock fish to your plate at home. Minimal energy and labor are needed with compliance that far exceed the standard governmental requirements. We are pioneering a new standard and the highest bio-security standards in the industry to prevent fish disease. No chemicals, no antibiotics, all natural products! We use eco-friendly practices inside the only indoor self-sustaining water-conserving zero-emission fish farm in the United States.
Steelhead Springs is a solution that I developed for the country. This solution will lead to mass growth across the world. This industry that I can help can be very misleading, untrue, and extremely harmful to humanity. My vision is simple, everything must change! The new Era of Knowledge is here.
Most Americans do not eat fish every day. This is because prices of fish have tripled over the last decade. Dietary requirements indicate that we all should eat at least 2-3 serving sized fish meals a week to help our bodies function properly. It is beneficial to eat fish more than two times a week, however, now due to its prices and toxicity levels, the public is being told to limit their fish consumption. The EPA and FDA have addressed methylmercury exposure averaged over a week’s time. The FDA’s “safe” dose of methylmercury for any given person is the RfD multiplied by the person’s body weight in kilograms, then by 7 (to convert daily dose to weekly dose.) For example, a 60-kilogram (132-pound) woman’s safe weekly dose is (0.1 microgram of methylmercury per kilogram of body weight per day) x (60 kilograms) x (7 days) = 42 micrograms of methylmercury. Fish that come from a clean environment that grew to adulthood in pristine clean and clear water, have between 16 and 40 micrograms of methylmercury in its tissue. Some farmed raised fish have tested off the scale. At the time of my mothers’ diagnosis and pre-recovery post the surgery she tested 11 times higher than normal level of micrograms in her blood stream. Therefore, doctors focused on mercury poisoning by ingestion.
Fish absorb contaminants such as PCBs, PBDEs, dioxins, chlorinated pesticides from water and sediments, all of which are toxic to us as humans. The fertilizers we use to have the greenest grass end up in our waters, then in our streams which lead to our rivers and oceans. This all has caused amass disturbance in the fish industry.
Mislabeled fish is not a myth, it is a horrible reality that creates serious health risks, including conditions that will be fatal. 75% of the world’s seafood/fish are swapped out for cheaper fish and sold as a more expensive alternative. Health and safety risks occur because consumers are unable to make informed purchases of certain fish products to protect themselves against these risks based on the product label.
With social media today it is rapidly broadcasted around the country if a grocery chain store sold an inferior product. There are millions of videos on the web exposing this industry. This exposure is showing us how some farmers are feeding their fish waste and sewage with a side of antibiotics to just survive the feeding. Some farmers are constantly injecting their fish with medicine to ensure they survive all contaminants in the water in which its being farmed. Realistically the world’s population is rapidly rising, scientists are projecting over a third of the world’s population will go hungry by year 2030. Those scientists are estimating today that out of 73 million children living in the United States, 20 million will go to bed hungry. Today's economy is threatening our way of life and making simple foods out of reach for the general public. Fish like any other livestock animal that is grown for public consumption, must be grown with quality and respect. The animal must be given a healthy environment, high quality feed, and an ideal environment that can later be harvested for human consumption.
Initial construction of Steelhead Springs is extensive and expensive. COVID-19 presented us with construction material prices skyrocketing. Materials that usually cost us pennies, now have turned into dollars. Things that cost hundreds of dollars, today they cost thousands. The farm construction was originally projected to take 9 to 16 months, due to government shutdowns and licensing delays the construction was delayed. Today I can say that things are looking up, we have a new schedule with a new timeline. We have orders to meet by summer of 2023 and we must be operational by then.
Today our fish have been steadily growing at a private facility at a Native American tribe in Washington state called Spokane Tribe.
In the meantime, while the construction was delayed, we focused our efforts on marketing and communication with copious amounts of clinical organizations throughout the United States.
In 2019 I contacted Home Depot headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia with a proposal. Steelhead Springs fish farm is in the fish farming business. The byproduct of the fish farm is fish fecal matter. One ounce of raw, digested, unprocessed fish fecal sample dilutes in five gallons of water. Watering vegetables with one ounce of mixed solution every 12 hours, supplies water and organic fertilization for 10 plants for 30 days on a watering cycle. Phosphate type of fertilizer is recommended only once a week or once a month due to its dangerous contents and properties. Our organic fertilizer is natural and therefore, cannot be harmful to plants and/or the environment if over fertilization occurs. Most fertilizers give a warning regarding over fertilization, or even some warnings regarding certain plants. Those products can decrease growth or leave them vulnerable to pests and disease, let alone the more serious side effects such as burned or desiccated roots, ultimately killing the plant. However, our product has NO harmful side effects for plants or the environment if over fertilization does occur. Home Depot requested a 90-sample growth test to verify our claims. When they received their request, they were impressed and sought for an exclusive supply with an optional licensing agreement with a mutual co-packer.
In 2020, Steelhead Springs received an inquiry from the United States military to create three samples of optional fish meals for the militaries MREs (Meals Ready-to-Eat). I am happy to announce we received a deal of a lifetime. However, due to confidentiality reasons, such person shall remain anonymous. This former decorated US General and I agreed on a multi-year, multi-tier supply contract for our soldiers. We will be providing their fish option meals to AmeriQual Packaging. We will supply the raw fish and AmeriQual Packaging will do the rest that includes packaging and preparation of meals for the MRE pouches. Shortly after our agreement, we received a purchase order to fulfill a supply for 500,000 MRE packages. This order will be satisfied with 150,000 fish. This order is due to fill on September 4th, 2023.
In 2020, Center for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) began a national campaign and domestic research on food and its impact on our body’s immune system post COVID-19 exposure and contraction. They did not know how processed foods affected people post COVID-19 infections and treatments. In our study conducted at University of Illinois in Chicago, research was presented regarding nutrients our company would provide. This research proved that overpowering a digestive system with naturally enriched foods like organic fish and vitamins can inhibit severe symptoms of the Coronavirus. Currently a process in our green house that was submitted to the University of Illinois showed promising results and clinical studies have been on going. Steelhead Springs has been recognized as the pioneer of the food process delivery, meaning, over-vitaminizing a human body without the use of pharmaceutical companies has been redefined. The process is simple, you do not need to buy expensive machines, exotic fruits, and vegetables, nor do you need to go far to buy your organic fish. Think primitive and prepare like one. In order to right this ship, we must push away from big pharmaceutical corporations. Instead of consuming vitamin pills and prescription medicine that do nothing more than build up your immune system, its much healthier and more beneficial to eat and drink a healthy substance that completely boosts your immune system naturally. Our system works and its proving to work every single day.
In April 2021, we received a call from the Spokane tribe explaining that our fish are growing healthy and big. In fact, they are growing so big that we must dilute our fish stock. Due to COVID delays we were scheduled to receive our fish stock by fall of 2021. However, that has been pushed back and the space that was allocated for the fish to grow to young adults has been exhausted. I looked for nonprofit organizations and/or research foundations that could use our product. I came across the ALS Association that was funding research at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore Maryland. The study was focused on the inhibiting factors and properties of Omega-3's and Omega-6's on ALS patients. Due to high Methylmercury contents in many fish on the market, a better option for organic fish was never viewed as a viable option for a solution. I immediately established communication and offered help. I supplied my wealth of knowledge of fish contamination as well as the research I conducted on contaminated Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and their vigorous fuel like property to diseases. In October 2021, ALS research association issued Steelhead Springs LLC a clinical trial research grant.
Steelhead Springs has been featured in numerous news stories and articles. I have been interviewed by newspapers and health magazines. In a most recent interview that we had was done by a high school student and a junior investigative reporter from a local high school.

Steelhead Springs LLC: A fish farm that managed to erase methylmercury poisoning from the fishing industry
Methylmercury is formed when mercury circulating in our surroundings dissolves in water bodies around us. It slowly makes its way up the food chain and accumulates in many organisms, especially thriving in marine ecosystems. The hazardous effects of methylmercury were noticed by researchers when it started effecting human health. Studies have shown that a substantial percentage of mercury in human bodies is due to fish intake.
The toxicity of this poisonous mercury compound directly translates into an array of fatal diseases in human beings. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), exposure to methylmercury increases the risk of several neurological and behavioral disorders.
Methylmercury poisoning has been studied as a potential cause for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis or ALS. It is not news that elevated mercury levels in ALS patients primarily originate from the consumption of mercury-contaminated fish and shellfish. Apart from this, stillbirths in pregnant women, breast cancer, and brain tumors can also be among the harmful side effects of methylmercury poisoning.
Methylmercury is currently an expanding issue across the country and the world. This industry can be very misleading, untrue, downright dangerous and life threatening for the people.
Because most Americans do not eat fish every day, the EPA and FDA have addressed methylmercury exposure averaged over a week’s time. The “safe” dose of methylmercury for any given person is the RfD multiplied by the person’s body weight in kilograms, then by 7 (to convert daily dose to weekly dose.) For example, a 60-kilogram (132-pound) woman’s safe weekly dose is (0.1 microgram of methylmercury per kilogram of body weight per day) x (60 kilograms) x (7 days) = 42 micrograms of methylmercury.
Many times, fishing industries mislabel fish products for economic benefits. This type of fraud is done to make extra money, and overall imposing a strikingly pernicious health implication on its consumers. These adverse effects have resulted in the loss of countless lives around the globe.
Steelhead Springs LLC was born from such a heart-wrenching incident. My pain and anger turned to determination. I came hailing from Saint Charles Illinois, outside of Chicago, and created this company soon after my mother passed away. The cause of her illness was methylmercury poisoning from eating mislabeled fish from a local grocery store. My passion for this industry combined with an aim to prioritize human health, has led my company to thrive.
My research on the fresh fish market was responsible for the changes in the FDA food regulations. I have petitioned states and several politicians to trace the location of all the places supplying fresh fish to the markets of the United States. By doing this, light was cast on the fraudulent tactics and manipulative business deals of many retailers.
Steelhead Springs LLC is now devoted to improving the quality of farming and mitigate such irresponsibility’s that can fatally harm human health.
My fish farm uses robust patented filtration techniques that include state of the art technologies and greenhouse organics to filter water. Thus, making the living environment of the fish pristine and clear, as their natural habitats would be. This makes Steelhead Springs LLC bio-secured from all contaminates and consequently, removes any traces of harmful substances such as methylmercury. The fish feed contains their own proprietary engineered feed that is made from organic soybeans which is prepared inhouse.
This technology I invented, holds the power to change the course of this industry. Its efficiency has attracted several eminent people such as Elon Musk and his Musk Foundation, who have offered to provide Steelhead Springs with backup power storage towers. Several retail giants have also penned down exclusive contracts for their fish and organic fertilizers.
