This Aquaculture Common Issues Group (ACIG) bite-size event looks at integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) in the context of ecosystem services and climate change, with a practical example of how it is being adopted in the UK. It will also look at what a major feed manufacturer is doing to reduce the environmental footprint of aquaculture production.

How to register
To register for this event please email Karen Green, Industry Issues and Communications.
The ACIG provides a safe meeting space to discuss the environmental, legal and production challenges facing the industry to deliver responsibly farmed finfish and shellfish.
People take part to keep-up-to-date with the latest developments, to be part of a cross-industry discussion and listen to the issues raised by other parts of the industry. They can also raise their own issues, network with other people or make new contacts.
The group is led by the aquaculture industry and we take responsibility for running the ACIG. The ACIG brings together stakeholders who represent the retail, producers, food service and restaurant industry. Other people who attend are not-for-profit environmental voluntary groups, consumer groups, government, scientists and industry bodies.
