- General News
USSEC Senior International Aquaculture Program Advisor Michael Cremer, Ph.D., was recognized with the Outstanding Achievement Award by the United Soybean Board (USB). This award, one of the U.S. Soy industry’s highest honors, is presented to individuals or organizations that have been instrumental in developing major new opportunities for U.S. soybeans that have greatly impacted the profit potential for all U.S. soybean farmers.
Dr. Cremer, a renowned aquaculture researcher, has dedicated more than 30 years to helping the U.S. Soy industry realize its potential with a growing consumer of soy. Through his work in aquaculture, he helped the Asian aquaculture industry become a more sustainable industry that is using more U.S. Soy every year in fish feed.
“I am deeply honored to receive this award,” said Dr. Cremer. “Working with the U.S. soybean industry has been the highlight of my career. I have been doubly blessed, to have had one of the best aquaculture jobs in the world and to work with folks that I call both colleagues and friends.”
“USSEC and the U.S. Soy industry are very fortunate to have Dr. Cremer’s talents,” stated USSEC Chairman Laura Foell. “He has truly taken a long-term view to move the Asian aquaculture industry from one that was extensive and inefficient to one that is largely feed-based today. China and India have definitely benefitted from his visionary approach, but so have Southeast Asia, Latin America and even Europe.”
USB Chairman Bob Haselwood presented the award to Dr. Cremer at the Commodity Classic in Phoenix, Arizona on March 6.
