Mr Shone has been committed to GAA’s mission of responsible aquaculture for 15 years, supporting the development the Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) third-party certification program from the outset and guiding the organization’s evolution as a Director on the Board.
Previously, Mr Shone served on GAA’s Executive Committee, representing Lyons Seafoods Ltd. He acted as the UK supplier’s Director of Sourcing until stepping down last month.

“We are delighted that Iain will remain with GAA as its Development Director,” he added. “He is an asset for continuing to advance our program development.”
