“In Norway, fish health services and environmental services have been an important part of our business for years, and we are delighted to expand our commitment to aquaculture in Scotland and Ireland in the same way. I look forward to collaborating with the experienced Pharmaq Analytiq Veterinary and Environmental services team and welcoming them as colleagues to Stim,” said Stim CEO Carl Erik Arnesen.

“Stim believes in the transformative power of knowledgeable people working together, sharing ideas and experiences. We encourage cross-disciplinary collaboration between our fish health and environmental teams in Norway and across geographies.
