Michael Turner

Marketing/Processing Manager, Kauai

Michael Turner joined iAqua’s Kauai operation in August 2011 as the marketing/processing manager. Mr. Turner has been an end user, wholesaler and distributor of wild and farmed shrimp for over 30  years. His product knowledge, distribution and processing experience add important assets to the iAqua team.

In the late 1970’s, Turner opened eight seafood restaurants across the U.S. and developed a commissary for the chain in Denver, Colorado. It flew in fresh seafood in from around the world, then portioned, repacked and redistributed the fresh product by air to its locations in several states. By eliminating the need for seafood wholesalers in each of  the restaurants, the chain received a wider variety of fresh fish at a more competitive price.

In 1994, Turner started a wholesale food distribution company based in Hawaii and serviced restaurant and hotel accounts statewide.
