New Innovation Roadmap Outlines Pathway for Scottish Aquaculture Growth

A new report on the innovation needs of the Scottish aquaculture sector has been launched at the first meeting of the Industry Leadership Group (ILG) in Inverness, attended by Fergus Ewing MSP, Cabinet Secretary for the Rural Economy and Connectivity.

The report - 'Scottish aquaculture: a view towards 2030' - follows a six-month scoping study into the innovation needs of the sector, commissioned by the Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) with support from Highlands and Islands Enterprise, and conducted by independent consultants Imani Development in partnership with SRSL.

The study used a combination of desk research, data from two key industry events, and targeted interviews with industry leaders and regulators to inform an innovation roadmap that sets out the needs of the sector according to urgency and impact, and recommends a pathway of actions through to 2030.
