En­ter now for in­no­va­tion award

Fish Farmer - - News -

NOM­I­NA­TIONS are now open for the sought after Aqua Nor in­no­va­tion award, the win­ner of which will be an­nounced at this year’s ex­hi­bi­tion in Trond­heim in Au­gust.

Com­pa­nies or in­di­vid­u­als from all over the world that sup­ply equip­ment or ser­vices to the aqua­cul­ture in­dus­try, or are in the aqua­cul­ture in­dus­try, are in­vited to ap­ply for the award.

In 2017, the last time the awards were staged, Dundee based Ace Aquactec beat off stiff Nor­we­gian com­pe­ti­tion to win the NOK 100,000 (about £9,000). Ace’s Nathan Pyne-Carter, who picked up the award for his hu­mane slaugh­ter elec­tric stun­ner, said the prize would raise the com­pany’s pro­file. He has since gone on to open of­fices around the world, and last year won the Queen’s Award for En­ter­prise in the in­no­va­tion cat­e­gory.

The dead­line for ap­ply­ing for the in­no­va­tion award is May 1, and the win­ner will be re­vealed on Au­gust 20, at the open­ing of Aqua Nor 2019.
