Neil Hornby has been appointed as the new chief executive of CEFAS (Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science), the UK’s most diverse centre for applied marine and freshwater science and research.

“It is an exciting time to join CEFAS as the UK takes on responsibility for managing our fisheries and we continue to strengthen our leading role in protecting the marine environment around the world,” Hornby said, adding science and analysis will be at the heart of this.

Currently, Hornby is the Director of Marine and Fisheries in DEFRA (Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs), a post he has held since 2016.
