EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND, UK - Experts are to gather in Edinburgh to discuss sustainability issues in Scottish aquaculture.

Scotland is seeking to use science based policy, regulation and voluntary industry codes to increase the sustainability of the aquaculture sector within the context of increasingly focused regulation and global environmental and economic forces.

The symposium will explore sustainability under four broad themes of the environment, fish health and welfare, the role of science within regulation and policy, together with the socio-economic impact of aquaculture.

The symposium is being organised by the Scottish Aquaculture Research Forum (SARF) in conjunction with The Royal Society of Edinburgh and The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, and aims to engage delegates from a wide range of backgrounds with an interest in aquaculture, bring together the extensive portfolio of SARF sponsored research, complemented by internationally recognised keynote speakers.
