New Divisional Director of the Norwegian Aqua department has started
Gråkjær sees a growing demand for land-based fish-farming in Norway, and is now establishing a Norwegian aquaculture department headed by Frode Mathisen
Frode Mathisen has been appointed Divisional Director at Gråkjær Aqua. His task is to create closer links with the Norwegian aquaculture market and to expand our network. “To connect to a market and cultivate a network is just so much easier if you are close, and have the same cultural understanding”, says Aqua’s, Morten Malle. The same model is operating successfully at Gråkjær Agriculture in Norway.
Frode Mathisen is a graduate civil engineer with a master’s degree within product development and project economics. For the past 21 years he has worked for Skanska in Norway - first as a contract engineer and later as project manager on major complex and public works infrastructure projects in urban areas. Here Frode had overall responsibility for project implementation and at the same time, acted as a link between clients and the projects.
He brings extensive experience in project management and contract management and is also used to managing complex projects through to the finish, as well as management in major project organisations.
Frode Mathisen lives only a few kilometres from Gråkjær’s construction site in Fredrikstad, where we are currently building the largest land-based slaughterhouse for salmon in the Nordic region. When the plant is completed, it will be able to produce around 2,400 tonnes of salmon for slaughter per year.
