About the aquaculture sector
Ambitions for growth
Adding value to Scotland's economy and local communities
The Scottish aquaculture sector has ambitions for sustainable growth – in terms of production values, capacity, exports, revenue and job creation.
As one of eight innovation centres introduced by the Scottish Government to drive growth in areas of key economic and social importance, we work alongside the sector to help it achieve these ambitions.
SAIC supports this through:
- Connecting industry with academia to encourage collaboration on the priority issues;
- Sharing the insights and knowledge gleaned with the wider sector;
- Attracting additional UK and EU funding into Scottish aquaculture;
- Encouraging new generations into the sector and developing those already working within Scottish aquaculture.
