Aquaculture tech company Aquabyte has hired Hans Runshaug to manage its new office in Bergen, Norway, which now includes a testing facility and demonstration room to entertain customers, according to IntraFish sister site TekFisk.

Runshaug has seven years of industry experience, having worked with Sjotroll Aquaculture and co-founded Blue Ocean Technology.

Aquabyte sells machine-learning technology related to automatic lice detection, biomass estimation and fish-health detection.

The company was founded by Bryton Shang, who hails from Silicon Valley, where Aquabyte has another office.

Earlier in the year, Aquabyte raised $10 million (€8.8 million) in Series A funding to help it accelerate product development by doubling its team and expanding into Scotland, Canada and Chile.
