Dutch land-based yellowtail farmer The Kingfish Company is looking for a new CFO because current CFO Christo du Plessis is leaving the company in May, just over a year after taking on the role.

Du Plessis is departing to become CEO of another company, the name of which has not been disclosed.

He was named CFO last April, and previously served as CFO of Klein Karoo Europe, part of the Klein Karoo International group of companies based in South Africa, the world's largest producer of ostrich meat.
