Global Technical and Sales Director, Diana Aqua – Aquativ, France

Dr Philippe Sourd qualified as a vet in France and specialized in aquaculture and fish health 12 years ago, starting on sea bream hatchery and working more specifically on gilthead sea bream larvae digestive development. He then moved up to Scotland to work for Fjord Seafood where he was in charge of the health and welfare of a 7,000T salmon stock as well as assisting production and quality departments. After 4 years in this role, he joined an independent fish vet in France to build up in 6 years’ time one of the most successful fish vet consultancy service in continental Europe, bringing dedicated health services to the aquaculture industry across the whole of Europe and North Africa. Over 3 years ago, Philippe embraced a new path by joining Aquativ as a fish health specialist and business development manager to support the growth and performance of Aquativ marine functional hydrolysates.
