Gofish.com, the seafood industry's leading B2B trading exchange, is pleased to announce that fifteen-year seafood industry veteran, Andrew (Andy) Forman joins Gofish as a species exchange manager. Forman will work alongside another seafood industry veteran, John Snyder who also recently joined Gofish as a species exchange manager after 17 years of working in the industry. Gofish species exchange managers are responsible for intimately knowing the various species of fish sold on the site, forecasting markets and trends and assisting the Gofish sales team. "Species exchange managers are critical to Gofish's ability to successfully keep our members satisfied and comfortable with trading fish online," says John Cummings, Gofish president and chief operating officer. "We feel Andy's extensive experience in the seafood industry guarantees he will be tuned into the market and members' needs."
