Directing our work and overseeing progress is the SAIC Board, with a strong industry presence.

There are representatives from leading producers Marine Harvest Scotland and Scottish Sea Farms, and feed giant BioMar, ensuring that the industry, including the supply chain, has a strong voice.

There are also representatives from academia, including the University of Stirling – our host institution – and the University of Edinburgh, along with observers from the Scottish Funding Council and Highlands and Islands Enterprise.
