New tech role for Kingfish Company founder

Ohad Maiman, founder and former CEO of yellowtail producer The Kingfish Company, has taken on a new senior aquaculture role.

He has been appointed Chairman of the board of the Israeli high tech company BioFishency, which specialises in electro-chemical and biological filter technology treatments for RAS (recirculating aquaculture systems) plants.

Maiman stepped down as head of The Kingfish Company last November. He is currently the founder and Managing partner of AquaFounders Capital, an investment business focused on the land-based aquaculture sector.

Under his leadership, The Kingfish Company became one of the world’s flagship RAS producers with the development of land-based yellowtail operations first in the Netherlands, and now the United States.

BioFishency CEO Michael Isakov said: “Ohad brings unrivalled business acumen in founding and leading land-based aquaculture initiatives, matched with an unprecedented track record in his knowledge and understanding of the sector.

“Working closely with Ohad will result in faster than anticipated success for BioFishency in our outreach to new target markets, while achieving the company’s aggressive goals.”

Explaining his move, Maiman said: “BioFishency’s innovative water treatment solutions, their in-depth understanding of market requirements, and the company’s skilled and professional team, prompted my decision to get on-board.”
