The Soy Aquaculture Alliance has named Andy Tauer as executive director. He had been serving in the role on an interim basis. Tauer also previously served as director of livestock & aquaculture for the Indiana Soybean Alliance and Indiana Corn Marketing Council. He has worked with industry partners to grow value-added soybean demand through increased livestock and aquaculture in the state of Indiana. Tauer also has overseen checkoff-funded research on improving soybean meal nutrition qualities for livestock and aquaculture. He has been actively involved in promotion of meat, poultry/eggs and exports for Indiana corn and soybean farmers. 

While serving as interim executive director of SAA, Tauer has been working to grow the membership base, as well as forge relationships with industry leaders. In conjunction with his responsibilities, he will continue serving the Indiana Soybean Alliance and Corn Marketing Council by dedicating part of his time to the role of livestock director.

Comprised of both Qualified State Soybean Boards as well as industry partners, SAA is working to make US soybeans the most widely trusted and commonly used aquafeed ingredient. The Soy Aquaculture Alliance relies on strategic guidance from board members, who represent both the U.S. soybean farmers and the aquaculture industry.
