BioMar, in announcing the appointment of a new MD for its Australian operations, said its new feed production site in Tasmania is scheduled to start operations either late Q4 2019 or early Q1 2020.

Whyte, who is currently senior manager of innovation and projects at Tassal, is a marine biologist with 32 years’ experience in aquaculture production and supply companies in Scotland, Australia and New Zealand from Huon Aquaculture to Skretting.

He was previously a technical manager at BioMar’s UK plant in the late nineties, and now will lead the start-up of the company’s first Australian mill.

Whyte is set to take up the new role in BioMar in mid-July 2019.

In March 2017, the Danish fish feed manufacturing group announced an almost DKK 300m (US$45m) investment in a new feed factory in Tasmania. The project was previously moved back a few months due to regulatory processing, but is now said to be progressing to plan. The facility will have annual capacity of about 110,000 tons, said the company.
