Manji spent seven years as fish health manager and senior biologist for Cooke Aquaculture, in Scotland, after completing her aquaculture doctorate in 2010.

She has now taken up a position as fish health specialist for Marine Harvest in Bergen.

“I think Marine Harvest seems like an exciting opportunity and challenge. This job is something different from what I was working with as fish health chief for Cooke,” said Farah said in a statement.

Research background

In her new role, Manji will get to use her research background to a greater degree, something she is looking forward to.

“Farah has great knowledge and experience, and will be a good and valuable addition to the fish health team in Marine Harvest,” said Gordon Ritchie, Group Manager Fish Health & Performance, Global R & D and Technical.

Manji becomes part of Marine Harvest's global teams for research, development and technology that number over 40 people. The company intends to increase the number of academics further.
