Andy Reeve, Managing Director at AquaGen Scotland Ltd, has been an agent for AquaGen Atlantic salmon – and rainbow trout eggs – since 2005. Martin Haberfield, Technical Sales Manager at AquaGen Scotland, joined the company in 2017.
“Until today the genetically improved eggs have been imported from Norway, but from the season 2018/2019, we have the possibility of producing eggs from AquaGen salmon broodstock that are already swimming in Scottish cages,” says Odd Magne Rødseth, Group Director for Aquaculture at EW Group. “By building up a integrated production line for both broodfish and egg, we will be able to serve the Scottish salmon farmers in a better way.”
In addition the new production sites will be included in AquaGens back-up production network and further strengthen the security of egg supply to European salmon farmers.
