Aquaculture

Aquaculture is one of the fastest growing AgriFood areas globally, and is key to ensure food security for a growing world population.

The UK aquaculture industry has a production value in excess of £590 million to the UK economy, and Scottish salmon represents one of the most valuable food exports. The expertise found within the UK aquaculture industry positions us as leaders on many of the challenges and opportuntie’s in this field. The UK industry is centred around production of key species such as salmon, as well as other growing finfish and shellfish sectors. Combining best industry practice with innovative solutions and a supportive research base, the UK is positioned to significantly expand its offshore, nearshore and landbased production systems.

KTN has expertise across a range of aquaculture production methodolgies which gives us the insight needed to connect you to relevant organisations. We bring together a range of different stakeholders from industry, academia, government and others to enable consortia building and provide clear direction to people who want to innovate in this sphere.
