The United Kingdom’s Sea Fish Industry Authority (Seafish) announced on Tuesday that CEO John Rutherford will retire at the end of June 2010 after eight-plus years on the job.

Seafish is already searching for a successor, which will be hired by March, according to the organization.

“I have had the privilege of serving the seafood industry in what must rank as one of the industry’s best jobs for the past eight years,” said Rutherford. “In that time, we have redefined Seafish’s role and made great progress to improve the value for money our organization delivers to industry.”

“John leaves behind a legacy of performance improvement and accountability, and our heartfelt thanks go to him on behalf of industry for the vigor and intelligence he has brought to this important role,” said Seafish Chairman Charles Howeson. “We are now actively seeking a successor for John to continue developing focused, value-for-money services for the seafood industry.”
