New managing director at Nofima Marine

Camilla Røsjø (46) succeeds Liv B. Ulriksen as managing director at Nofima Marine. She comes from a position as assistant director in the same company.

Røsjø holds a PhD in the field of fish nutrition, and is an experienced leader and scientist with her background as institute director at Norwegian School of Veterinary Science and CEO at Akvaforsk. She knows the aquaculture and fisheries industry well through her position as board member at several companies.

"I’m really looking forward to getting started. The first six months after the Nofima merger has shown me what a potential the new company has, if we play our cards well. As Europe’s largest industry-oriented science group within aquaculture and fisheries we have a unique starting position, which we must utilize for all it’s worth to maintain a leading position in our fields of research. This inspires me. I also look forward to working out the synergies of our blue-green project. I believe in a win-win situation for both sectors," Røsjø says.

Ørjan Olsvik, CEO at Nofima Group, welcomes Røsjø on his team of leaders.

"Camilla is a highly respected researcher and leader, we are lucky to have her on board. She will play a very important role in the further development of Nofima," Olsvik says.

Nofima is a new industry-oriented research group that conducts research and development for aquaculture, fisheries and food industries, and is a result of merger between previous Matforsk, Fiskeriforskning, Akvaforsk and Norconserv.

Nofima Marine is the largest of four research divisions at Nofima with more than 260 employees performing their research in Tromsø, Ås, Sunndalsøra and Averøy. Nofima Marine`s headquarters are in Tromsø.
