Pescanova CEO Joins Global Aquaculture Alliance Board

Pescanova USA’s dynamic Chief Executive Officer Domingo Moreira has joined the board of directors of the Global Aquaculture Alliance, the standards-setting organization for aquaculture seafood.

A graduate of Harvard Business School, Moreira has spent 14 years in the seafood sector. He joined the Pescanova Group with its acquisition of Ladex LLC in 2007. Moreira was the chairman
of Ladex, a leading aquaculture company in Central America active in seafood trading in the United States and Europe.

“Domingo and his father are ethical, innovative leaders who work hard to build sound businesses, but also give generously of their resources and time to better the industry,” GAA Vice President Bill Herzig said. “GAA is indeed fortunate to have people of Domingo’s caliber join its board.”

Pescanova Group is a multi-faceted, vertically integrated company based in Spain that has international interests in fishing, aquaculture and frozen foods. Pescanova’s corporate emphasis on sustainability makes Pescanova USA a good fit as a new Governing Member of GAA.

“It is a tremendous privilege and asset to have Pescanova become a Governing Member of GAA because Pescanova is recognized as a top global producer and market leader in seafood in the European Union, the Americas and worldwide,” GAA President George Chamberlain said.

Moreira takes over on the GAA board from Antonio Pino, who served since 2008. Pino was the general manager of Promarisco, S.A., a shrimp supplier in Ecuador acquired by Pescanova in 2008.

“Antonio Pino has been a strong supporter of GAA and seafood sustainability for over 10 years,” Chamberlain said. “His vision, leadership and contributions have advanced the industry and helped make GAA the leader in seafood sustainability. We thank Antonio for his dedicated service to the industry and to GAA.”
