Prior to this, King spent over a decade with feed producer Skretting as global technical director. He also has ten years under his belt in hatchery operations.
“The hire of Nick further strengthens Nordic Aquafarm´s commitment to high animal health standards, biosecurity, and quality throughout our activities in the US,” wrote Nordic Aquafarms.
