WELCOME TO ARCH-UK
475 members and counting….
The Aquaculture Research Collaborative Hub UK is an academia-led network developing a UK aquaculture community. Through events and online platforms we:
- sign-post aquaculture research to research councils (UKRI)
- create opportunities for skills development
- transfer the latest knowledge, technology, techniques and scientific insight
- promote mobility and collaboration between universities and industry
ARCH-UK is made up of eight working groups (see below), which include a wide range of aquaculture stakeholders from academia, industry and policy. Working Groups organise events based on feedback from our extensive member base.
Need to find project partners, research expertise or want to find out the latest innovations in UK aquaculture research? Get involved or contact us through the 'Contact' and 'Join us' pages. For more information about ARCH-UK click here.

Are you an Early Career Researcher? Would you like to get more involved in curating events and training for ECRs and the wider UK aquaculture community? ARCH-UK would like to find the next generation of aquaculture knowledge exchange leaders. If you are passionate about building the UK academic capability to develop sustainable aquaculture solutions, would like to increase your network and be more proactive in creating opportunities for research impact then please put yourself forward to become an ARCH-UK Working Group Co-Lead.
Each Co-Lead position (Working Group 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 , 7, 8) is open for up to one year (subject to the time you have available) to any ECR based at a UK institution. Your role would be in support of the current ARCH-UK Working Group Leads who curate events in response to community needs to encourage innovation and knowledge exchange. ARCH-UK defines an ECR as someone within 10 years of PhD graduation without a permanent position.
REGISTRATION NOW OPEN. Presentations from experts in the field of microplastic research and group discussion will hope to establish the scientific consensus on the risk of microplastics to aquaculture and fisheries.
This workshop will showcase the latest research on salmon triploidy including induction, monitoring, feeds, health and welfare. Ongoing research on gene editing for fish sterility and other innovations from leading international scientists will also be showcased and discussed.
