Aker BioMarine appoints aqua veterinary
Wednesday, March 18, 2020
Marianne Nergård takes on the role as veterinarian and key account manager for QRILL Aqua sales in Aker BioMarine and will be responsible for communicating the value of krill on the health and performance of various marine species.
Nergård has dedicated much of her career to investigating and communicating the effects of krill on fish health. Prior to joining Aker BioMarine, she spent five years at BioMar working with product development and technical support on the health feed range. During her time at BioMar, she also worked closely with the R&D department to explore the effects of high krill diets on fish. One of her main responsibilities was to communicate how feed influences fish health and welfare, as well as how it improves the overall fillet quality and performance, which has a large impact on the value of the product for fish farmers.
“I am passionate about increasing fish health and welfare, and also in showing how healthier fish are part of making the aquaculture business more sustainable,” said Nergård. “I have witnessed on several occasions that krill is a key ingredient to mitigate the negative effects of several important infectious diseases, all while serving as a sustainable feed ingredient. This is why I believe that krill is going to be important to help improve fish health and performance in the future.”
