Arowana took the name of Arowana, a tropical freshwater fish primarily found in Southeast Asia, because of its unique characteristics. The Arowana is a highly resilient and resourceful fish known for its boldness. Growing to an average of three feet in length, it can jump more than two metres out of the water to catch food. Rare in the wild, it dates from prehistoric times and are survivors with a long history of adaptation. For them , this fish is a good metaphor for their business: resilient, resourceful, bold, and adaptable.
