Land-based salmon farmer Proximar Seafood has named Javier Carreno Verdugo, a former technical expert at Mowi and Atlantic Sapphire, as its new production manager.
Carreno Verdugo previously served as the head of Mowi’s recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) unit for just over a year before joining Proximar. His prior experience includes roles as growout manager and fish technical assistant at Atlantic Sapphire in Florida, as well as positions within the Chilean salmon industry and Cermaq Global.
Commenting on LinkedIn, Proximar COO Dharma Rajeswaran expressed confidence in Carreno Verdugo’s skills, experience, and commitment, highlighting his potential to contribute significantly to Proximar’s success.
“We are excited to welcome Javier Carreño to the Proximar Seafood family as our new production manager! We believe that your skills, experience, and passion make you a great fit for our team, and we are confident that you will make valuable contributions to our ongoing success,” wrote Rajeswaran.
Proximar recently assumed full ownership of a facility in Oyama, Japan, marking the completion of Japan’s first commercial Atlantic salmon farming facility construction.
