SAIC projects tackle urgent issues, introduce more sustainable practices, mitigate the risks for producers, and prepare the industry for the future
The Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre has a number of projects and initiatives up-and-running or under development, including projects that are strategically important for the aquaculture industry and the Scottish economy.
In March 2015 we announced grants worth almost £950,000 for two research projects initiated by the salmon industry. The projects aim to boost the numbers, quality and welfare of farmed cleaner fish used in commercial salmon farms to control sea lice.
And not all of our projects involve funding. For example, read below about our SAIC Scholars Connect programme, which could draw talented students into the aquaculture industry in Scotland.
