Zoom­ing in for awards short­list

Fish Farmer - - Open – And Shut -

SEPTEM­BER is go­ing to be a busy month in the aqua­cul­ture cal­en­dar, with the big Aqua­cul­ture UK ex­hi­bi­tion, based in Aviemore, switched from May to Septem­ber 15-17, and the EAS’s Aqua­cul­ture Europe 2020 con­fer­ence long booked for Cork from Septem­ber 29 to Oc­to­ber 1.

The Aqua­cul­ture Awards are due to go ahead in Septem­ber, too, with a spe­cial pre­sen­ta­tion din­ner dur­ing the Aviemore show.

Event or­gan­iser 5m Pub­lish­ing said the panel of judges man­aged to meet on Zoom to draw up a short­list, which it plans to re­lease on April 15.

The win­ners will then be an­nounced at the awards din­ner tak­ing place on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 16, dur­ing the Aqua­cul­ture UK event.

Su­san Tinch of 5m said: ‘We had a record num­ber of en­tries from all over the world and across a num­ber of sec­tors.

‘The qual­ity of the en­tries was ex­cel­lent and high­light the en­ergy, en­thu­si­asm and in­no­va­tion hap­pen­ing in the aqua­cul­ture in­dus­try.’

The de­ci­sion to post­pone the ex­hi­bi­tion from its orig­i­nal slot in May was made last month by 5m Pub­lish­ing and Diver­si­fied Com­mu­ni­ca­tions UK, which has re­cently bought the event.
