Judges named for aquaculture awards
THE judges have been announced for the re-launched Scottish Marine Aquaculture Awards, to be held on May 23 next year during the Aquaculture UK exhibition in Aviemore.
The eight-strong panel has been chosen for its breadth of knowledge of the varied aspects of the UK aquaculture industry, said awards organiser 5m Publishing.
They include Alex Adrian, aquaculture operations manager of Crown Estate Scotland; Jim Treasurer, research director at FAI Ardtoe; Martin Gill, managing director of Acoura; Rob Fletcher, senior editor of the Fish Site and Sustainable Aquaculture Magazine; Professor Neil Hazon, director of the Sustainable Aquaculture Course at the University of St Andrews; Nicki Holmyard, head of Corporate Communications for Offshore Shellfish; Sunil Kadri of Hatch Blue; and event organiser Susan Tinch.
Adrian, who was on the judging panel when the awards were run by the Crown Estate, said: ‘I’m keen that the awards are being continued because they are an important showcase for the continuous innovation shown by aquaculture businesses.’
