Seafish Domestic Aquaculture Advisory Committee

Seafish has facilitated the English Aquaculture Working Group (EAWG) since 2012 and it has provided a forum for key English stakeholders to discuss strategic issued related to aquaculture and its development in England. However it has long been recognised that many aquaculture issues pertinent to England are not 'standalone' but are cross-border in nature and frequently apply UK-wide.

With this in mind, the EAWG has evolved to become the Seafish Domestic Aquaculture Advisory Committee (SDAAC).

This new initiative draws together a wider membership of UK aquaculture stakeholders. The SDAAC is formed from volunteers eager to see more coordinated and strategic development of UK aquaculture - from producers to Governmental bodies; NGOs to trade associations.

The SDAAC will provide stakeholder with a mechanism for directing the work areas and resource allocation of Seafish' Domestic Aquaculture Strategy Programme, and will enable Seafish to make more effective, positive contributions to the aquaculture industry; assisting its expansion across the UK.

The SDAAC Terms of Reference are available here.

The presentations and minutes from the inaugural SDAAC meeting held in May 2016 are below, as are ones from previous EAWG meetings.
