Leonardo DiCaprio invests in Colorado aquaculture company
BOULDER, Colorado (AP) ― Actor Leonardo DiCaprio has invested in a Boulder food company that focuses on sustainable aquaculture.
LoveTheWild, according to a Daily Camera report, said the actor was among the backers that helped fund its $3 million Series A investment. The Boulder, Colorado company makes cook-it-yourself seafood kits sourced with sustainably raised fish.
DiCaprio will join the company’s advisory board. His financial contribution was not disclosed.
In a statement, DiCaprio praised LoveTheWild’s sustainable fishing practices.
The recent round of investing will help LoveTheWild, which currently offers a mix of wild-caught and farmed fish, to move toward sourcing 100 percent of its fish from aquaculture operations.
This is not the Oscar-winning actor’s first eco-investment. In May he invested in Runa, an organic, fair-trade tea company. He also had ties to electric car maker Fisker and waste management firm Rubicon Global.

Is this the same DiCaprio that jets all over the world to lecture us on carbon and climate change? Again, it reeks of a political agenda he’s pushing.
