Innovasea named Marc Turano as vice president and general manager of its land-based aquaculture group. Turano has more than 25 years of experience in the aquaculture industry and is an expert on recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS), fish nutrition and fish physiology.

“Marc’s deep aquaculture experience, impressive academic record and impeccable business instincts make him the perfect choice to lead our growing land-based aquaculture business,” said Innovasea CEO, David Kelly. “His strong vision and leadership skills will be vital as we continue to expand our RAS design/build business and broaden our expertise in land-based fish farming.”

Prior to joining Innovasea, Turano spent nearly five years at Cargill, where he served as sales director for its seafood business. Before that, he worked in various sales roles at Pentair, including global sales manager.

“Innovasea is a world leader in RAS design and critical system components, and I’m excited to join the team and start driving new business,” said Turano. “The company’s focus on innovation and its breakthroughs in environmental monitoring and artificial intelligence complement its track record with RAS systems. Taken together they provide a compelling differentiator for those investing in land-based aquaculture.”

Earlier in his career, Turano served as director of N.C. State’s Marine Aquatic Research Center and as mariculture and blue crab expert for the North Carolina Sea Grant.
