Scottish Aquaculture and Innovation Center

At the recent European Aquaculture Technology and Innovation Platform (www.eatip.eu) meeting in Brussels, we were discussing how national aquaculture platforms could play a role to put into action the EATIP strategic research and innovation agenda.
At this time, Randolph Richards informed us of the creation of the Scottish Aquaculture and Innovation Center (SAIC), based in Stirling.
The SAIC is now looking for its Director and the Chair of its Board.
if you are interested, or you know someone that could be, I invite you to contact directly Caroline Bell (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) and phone +44 131 331 5516 to find out more.
Candidatures should be received by her early May.

DIVERSIFY looks at emerging species for EU aquaculture

DIVERSIFY Logo fullOver the next 5 years, the EU project DIVERSIFY will study a number of new/emerging finfish species, with great potential for the EU aquaculture industry. These new/emerging species (meagre, greater amberjack, wreckfish, halibut, grey mullet and pikeperch) are fast growing and/or large finfishes marketed at a large size and can be processed into a range of products to provide the consumer with both a greater diversity of fish species and new value-added products. See the DIVERSIFY web site for more.

Aquaculture International Impact Factor now over 1

Aquaculture International (AQUI) is the peer-reviewed journal of the EAS. Its 2012 Impact Factor (IF) is now 1.037, thus reaching one of the main objectives of the Editorial Board and EAS Board. After having an IF of more than 1.0 back in 1999, it slipped to 0.3 in 2003, but has gradually increased again since then. We are proud to see that it has now exceeded the milestone level of 1 and hope very much that this will encourage more publications from EAS members and non-members. See more..
