Feed giant BioMar hired former Stella Polaris Sales Manager Thomas Andre Johansen as customer manager for its Northern Norway business.

"Northern Norway is very important for BioMar," Sales and Marketing Director Henning Laugen said.

"Therefore, it is natural that we strengthen ourselves in this region."

Johansen led the sales department at the Norwegian shrimp producer Stella Polaris for the past three years.

He has had an interest in aquaculture since his time working at the Norwegian smoked salmon producer Follalaks.
