Unlocking additional capacity for aquaculture development through innovative, evidence-based approaches.
Developing DNA-based methodologies for seabed monitoring
Development of a reliable, near real-time, alternative method of classifying seabed quality against water framework directive (WFD) standards to ensure compliance with regulation.
Increasing capacity for salmon farming in areas of high dispersion
Better data on the benthic footprint of exposed sites; improved environmental monitoring and compliance; and increased production – both in terms of farming existing sites and developing new sites.
