Two new members join SAIC Board

The Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) has appointed two new members to its Board.

Ben Hadfield, managing director of Marine Harvest Scotland and Paddy Campbell, managing director of BioMar will join the SAIC Board on 1 August 2016, and will increase the number of members from three to five.

Ben, who is also chief operating officer of Marine Harvest’s fish feed segment and was formerly production director and technical & HSEQ manager at Marine Harvest Scotland, brings extensive production and technical experience.

Paddy, who held various senior level positions with BioMar – including global R&D director and R&D manager of the company’s Salmon, Mediterranean and UK Divisions – before being appointed as managing director in June of this year, has in-depth knowledge of the development and production of high quality fish feeds.

Both new members have expertise that SAIC says could prove invaluable in helping the centre address its four priority innovation actions: improved sea lice control; alternative sustainable feeds for finfish; rapid detection methods for viral pathogens and diseases; and secure health-certified mollusc spat production systems.

“SAIC is fortunate to have such a committed and industry-experienced Board,” said SAIC chairman Jack Perry. “The appointment of Ben and Paddy consolidates this further, bringing new perspectives to the table and helping cement SAIC’s position as a driver of industry-led innovation.”
