New appointment at Moray Seafoods
Vaughan Tyson has been appointed shellfish business manager at Moray Seafoods.
Mr Tyson, who was previously the general manager of crab processor Burgons of Eyemouth, brings considerable expertise to Moray Seafoods where he will now play a crucial role in spearheading the Buckie based company’s plans to broaden its scope and develop a wide portfolio of premium shellfish products to complement its core langoustine business.
His appointment is also great news for Scotland’s crab fishermen, with one of Mr Tyson’s key tasks being to build upon the existing supply base that Moray has developed over many years. In particular, he will be looking to forge new partnership arrangements with fishermen that will develop the market for premium crab and help provide a sustainable and profitable future for the sector.
Mr Tyson said: “I am delighted to be joining Moray Seafoods at this tremendously exciting time for the company and my initial focus will be on further developing the company’s crab business.
“An important element of my new role will be to further develop partnerships with our supply base, which we anticipate will bring real benefits to our valued fishing communities around the coast.”
