A provider of aquaculture health services has announced a new appointment following the restructure of its team.

L-R: Chris Matthews, Hamish Rodger and David Cox.

The Fish Vet Group (FVG) has heaquarters in Inverness, with branches in Ireland, the US, Norway and Thailand. It provides veterinary health services for fish farming operations and is the largest dedicated aquaculture health provider.

In the new management structure, vet Hamish Rodger takes on the new role of global managing director, and will have responsibility for coordinating the company’s clinical and diagnostic operations across its centres.

Elsewhere, and after 20 years with FVG’s Inverness branch, managing director David Cox becomes senior diagnostic consultant, while veterinary surgeon Chris Matthews moves into the position of operations director, where he will oversee the group’s veterinary, diagnostic and technical services in the UK.

Dr Rodger said he was “greatly looking forward” to working with FVG’s international centres.

“The rapid growth in global aquaculture production means health issues often present a barrier to sustainable growth,” he said.

“Through combining an expert-led, evidence-based approach to aquatic health alongside investment in innovative diagnostic technology, FVG can offer our clients – from aquaculture producers to veterinary and fish health colleagues in industry – a unique approach to sustainable production.”

Mr Cox called the restructure “excellent news” for FVG teams around the globe.

“Hamish is a renowned and highly experienced aquaculture vet,” he said. “His appointment will ensure we continue to develop the high standard of the clinical and diagnostic services we provide to our aquaculture clients around the world.”
