About the event
Our relationship with food in Scotland is going to change over the next few years due to changes in the way we grow, consume and distribute it. Our role as a society is to make sure that this change is a positive one. Aquaculture plays an important role in this.
Aquaculture is the breeding, rearing, and harvesting of fish, shellfish, algae, and other organisms in all types of water environments.
The Institute of Aquaculture University of Stirling is an international centre in aquaculture and the largest of its kind in the world. They are leading the world in a vision to tackle global problems of food security, hunger and sustainability through aquaculture, recognised through a recent award of the Queen’s Anniversary Prize.
