We had over 150 registrations for our 2nd Annual Science Event, our biggest event yet! Delegates enjoyed a wide range of presentations on current research innovations in nutrition, genetics, health and welfare, social acceptability, environment and climate change, as well as keynote talks from Ally Dingwall (Sainsbury’s Supermarket Ltd) and Prof Grant Stentiford (Cefas). Engaging discussions were had on the topic of creating the 1st UK aquaculture landscaping tool (a Seafish initiative) to aid stakeholders in sourcing expertise, and how to get the UK eating more seafood. Our extended networking hour gave attendees the opportunity to speak with lead scientists from the recently funded BBSRC/NERC Aquaculture Initiative Projects. This event also launched a ‘Technical Aquaculture Knowledge Exchange Group’, focusing on sharing best practice across aquaculture research facilities and highlighting opportunities for collaboration. Don’t miss our 3rd A.S.E. 2020 in Swansea next summer!
