SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 12, 2007 -- HQ Sustainable Maritime Industries, Inc.

"Ultimate Entrée" is a leader in direct marketing through the internet of superior seafood and meat products. The success as "an event food Headquarters," as seen through their recent "Super Bowl Special," works well with the sale of 'tailgate party' marketed products such as HQ's "TailGate TiLoveYa,"™ a skin-on boneless TiLoveYa toxin-free product sold by HQ, ideally suited for barbecue. Regular 1 pound and 1.5 pound bags of HQ's boneless skinless fillet will also be marketed on the site and available directly online to Ultimate Entrée's and HQ's clients.

HQ's products will be a featured item on Ultimate Entrée's web page for the month of March.

Said Mr. Mike Jaffe, CEO of Ultimate Entrée, "We are very excited by the prospect of marketing superior 'TiLoveYa' products from HQ. This unique American Company has taken quality production to new heights through its vertically integrated toxin-free rainwater farmed Tilapia products. You can taste the quality... experience the ultimate."

Said Mr. Sporns, "Consumers are rightfully concerned about increases in toxicity levels in seafood and need to be informed about what choices exist. 'TiLoveYa'™ is a fun brand that addresses the serious need for the lowest toxicity levels possible in food, the ultimate experience for consumers."

HQ recently completed a 1-for-20 reverse stock split, and has applied and is expected to be listed on the American Stock Exchange by the end of the First Quarter, 2007.

HQ also announced in December 2006 that it has broken ground for the first organic-extruded feed mill in Hainan which will produce 100,000 tons of organic floating feed and is expected to be completed in the Fourth Quarter of 2007.
