Ms Barazi-Yeroulanou was proposed for this position by the Hellenic Aquaculture Producers Organisation (HAPO). She replaces Marco Gilmozzi and is the first female to hold the position.

“The federation members are convinced that the unique skills and leadership capabilities of Lara Barazi will contribute to further promote aquaculture in Europe,” the FEAP said in a press release.

“Her substantive governance experience and proven track record in pursuing sustainable aquaculture in the Mediterranean were highlighted.”

As well as her role at Kefalonia, Ms Barazi-Yeroulanou holds a masters in public policy and international trade and finance from the Kennedy School of Government/Harvard University and a Bachelor of Arts in economics at Columbia University in the United States.

In an interview with Fish Site, the new President said she was ‘a bit reluctant to take on the role,’ but knew it was a ‘great opportunity to complete work started by the previous board.’

“Aquaculture is still a new and fast-moving business and FEAP needs to be able to keep up with the growth of the industry, the variety of subsectors and the complexity of the issues we deal with,” she said.

“We’d like to increase our capacity for technical work and ensure we provide value for our members, Europe’s national aquaculture associations.”
