AUSTRALIA - Tenders will be called for the construction of South Australia's $25.8 million aquaculture research facility in October. The facility will create a research pool that aims to steer future growth in the industry. Based around a $4.8 million expansion of the Lincoln Marine Science Centre, the Marine Innovation SA facility will bring industry, research and academia together, said SA Research and Development Institute's Aquatic Sciences Program Leader John Carragher. "It will provide compatible people and capabilities that will accelerate South Australia's research. It will underpin developments in all areas of aquaculture and wild fishing," he said.
