Barramundi announced on May 12 that four of its Board Directors were resigning, with no further details. Thus, Johannes Cornelis Antonius den Bieman, Andreas Peter Illum Wildfang von Scholten, Marit Solberg, and Sjoeberg Tristan Nenne are formally out of the company.

We Are Aquaculture tried unsuccessfully to contact Barramundi to obtain information about this executive’s group departure, but there was no response.

Nevertheless, the doubts are not only due to the lack of company explanations but also because some names are so well-known. Among them, Den Bieman and Solberg.

Den Bieman was CEO of Marine Harvest (now Mowi) and co-founder of a smolt farm in Chile and had been with Barramundi since 2011. Marit Solberg has also held senior management positions at Marine Harvest.

Everything is following in the wake of the changes that are taking place in the company. For a couple of years now, the company’s financial results have not been as expected. Moreover, in January 2023, Von Scholten handed over to James Kwan, who became the new head of Barramundi.
