FUND­ING for re­search into sus­tain­able feeds and di­ag­nos­tic so­lu­tions was an­nounced by the Scot­tish Aqua­cul­ture In­no­va­tion Cen­tre (SAIC) last month.

To be el­i­gi­ble, ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est must be led by an in­dus­try part­ner.

The open calls were is­sued fol­low­ing two SAIC work­shops in Jan­uary.

At­tend­ing the feeds work­shop, Brett Glen­cross, newly ap­pointed pro­fes­sor of nutri­tion at Stir­ling’s In­sti­tute of Aqua­cul­ture, said: ‘Feed com­pa­nies are seek­ing safe, se­cure, sus­tain­able and af­ford­able sup­plies of feed in­gre­di­ents from mul­ti­ple sources, from an­i­mals to crops, and from mi­cro­bial pro­teins to sea­weeds and in­ver­te­brates. There are many in­ter­est­ing av­enues for ap­plied re­search in this area.’

The dead­line for di­ag­nos­tics so­lu­tions is March 16 and sus­tain­able feeds, March 21.
