What’s happening in aquaculture in the UK and around the world
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.
