Our Team

 

Kate Casey, founder, Ikura Technician
After getting to know Chile’s southern region, Kate found work in a salmon farming company. But the experience drove her to search for her own niche within the aquaculture industry. She left behind a professional career to begin making artisan ikura in her kitchen and selling it to local restaurants. Today she is the company’s “ikura tech”, and after the production season she is in charge of the exports.
