NaturalShrimp appointed Christine Huynh to lead the company’s subsidiary Natural Aquatic Systems (NAS).
Huynh is consulting NAS to further the commercial research for applications in the aquaculture industry and lead the research being conducted at the Marineholmen RASLab in Bergen, Norway. RASLab will be working closely with NAS in further exploring the potential welfare benefits of the application of hydrogas and the incorporation of electrocoagulation. Huynh is an excellent liaison between NAS and RASLab where the commercialization and further development of NAS technologies have wider applications in the finfish aquaculture sector. There are potential applications for electrocoagulation and reducing gas (hydrogas) in aquaculture production and wastewater processing, that will improve the sustainability of the industry and fish welfare. The company believes that these trial results will directly lead to significant licensing opportunities.
“Christine brings a wealth of animal health and veterinary knowledge and will provide valuable insight and direction for NAS,” said Gerald Easterling, CEO of NaturalShrimp. “Her leadership skills and technical experience complement our work in Norway to evaluate the effects of hyper-antioxidant technologies on oxidation and fish health in Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS). With our successful initial validation study, she will lead the further exploration of production, health and welfare effects.”
Huynh is an aquatic veterinarian who works with commercial farms to improve health management systems and biological productivity. She has more than ten years of experience working with intensive aquaculture production and consults internationally. She is the director at Nautilus Collaboration, a consultancy firm specializing in aquaculture services.
