The sustainable aquaculture company has appointed Mick McMahon as Chief Executive Officer and Ian Brannan as Group Chief Finance Officer as part of its strategy to transform Seafarms into a significant multinational business.

The appointments, which commence on 20 September 2021, occur during a time of critical growth for Seafarms as it continues to finance and develop its world class Project Sea Dragon in northern Australia.

Mr McMahon is subscribing for 36.4 million Seafarms fully paid shares and Mr Brannan for 9 million fully paid shares by way of a direct share placement to both parties, on the same basis as the recently completed capital raising including 3 for 5 unlisted options.
