BAP's vice president to leave organisation


Peter Redmond, vice president of market development for the Global Aquaculture Alliance's Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) division, is leaving the organisation following eight years of service.


Redmond has been instrumental in the organisation's growth and the marketplace's acceptance of the concept for third-party aquaculture certification. He worked with the world's leading retail and foodservice buyers to incorporate BAP into their sustainable seafood sourcing policies.


In his eight years with the organisation, the number of BAP-certified processing plants, farms, hatcheries and feed mills jumped from 141 (at the end of December 2008) to 1,165 at the end of March 2016.


"Peter's ability to understand the needs of the marketplace and communicate that to the production end of the business was paramount to the success of BAP. He was the linchpin connecting the marketplace to the production end of the business," said GAA's executive director, Wally Stevens. "We wish him well in his next endeavor."


Redmond came to GAA after 18 years at Walmart, where he acted as senior director of Walmart's sustainability department and a vice president and divisional merchandise manager of deli and seafood.


Between his stints at Walmart and GAA, Redmond formed Epiphany Group, a consultancy specialising in sustainability issues.
