The annual general assembly of European Fishmeal and Fish Oil Producers (EFFOP) elected Frank Trearty, general manager of the Irish fishmeal producer Pelagia Killybegs, and until now vice president of EFFOP, as the new president. Johannes Palsson, CEO of the Danish fishmeal producer FF Skagen, stepped down after seven years as president.
“Johannes has done a great job taking the association where it is today. We, as an industry, have a great benefit in cooperating in the European Fishmeal association. As we are looking into a great number of emerging challenges, the need for strong cooperation and an effective secretariat is even greater in the future,” said Trearty.

- Frank Trearty, Ireland - President
- Garðar Svavarsson, Iceland - Vice President
