US land-based coho farming salmon startup Finger Lakes Fish, which does business under the LocalCoho, has appointed food industry veteran Michael Fabbro as its new CEO.

Fabbro joins the company from New Zealand King Salmon, where he led the company's US expansion of its premium Ora King fresh salmon and Regal smoked salmon lines.

He succeeds Phil Gibson, CEO since 2020, who will continue to sit on the company’s board.

"We look forward to benefiting from his insights and leadership as we continue to evolve and execute our strategies,” LocalCoho Chairman Robert Tobin said.
