Trout producer Dawnfresh Seafoods appointed former 2 Sisters Food Group exec William Duncanson as its new managing director in August.

Duncanson takes the place of Andrew Cooksey who had been in the position for the past six years.

Besides working for 2 Sisters Food Group, Duncanson was also the former managing director of UK-based smoker Farne Salmon & Trout, and Pinneys.

The company recently announced plans to invest in four fish farm sites in Argyll and Bute and North Ayrshire, with plans to build seven workboats and four feed barges.

Earlier in the year, the Scottish company posted another financial year in the red, putting more effort into structural changes with the appointment of two other site directors on Jul. 16, former Scotbeef General Manager Stephen Lamb and former Young's Seafood Head of Technical Garry Price.
