Ministerial Group For Sustainable Aquaculture – Science and Research Strategy

Aquaculture currently supplies more than 50% of global demand for fish and shellfish for human consumption. As the industry continues to grow Scotland is ideally placed to exploit this burgeoning market, but what are the barriers to Scottish expansion of this industry and how can it do so in an economically efficient and environmentally sensitive way? A report “Aquaculture Science & Research Strategy”, published today, by the Science and Research Working Group of the Ministerial Group for Sustainable Aquaculture, sets out research priorities to support the growth of aquaculture in Scotland while ensuring environmental sustainability.
