Glencross said: “I am delighted to be offered this opportunity to join the team at IFFO at a time when science is crucial to understand the future trends affecting the development of fish feed ingredients.

“Technical projects led by IFFO contribute a great deal to increasing our knowledge on marine ingredients and driving change for the benefit of the whole value chain, and especially the aquaculture sector.”
