Our next ACIG meeting will look at how investment is helping to fund innovation in UK aquaculture.

It is estimated that by 2030, 62% of all seafood produced for human consumption will come from aquaculture. Today, it is closer to 50%. Aquaculture has become more integrated into the global food system, with rapid growth in production and major transformations in feed ingredients, production technologies, farm management, and value chains.

This Aquaculture Common Issues Group bite-size session will look at how investment is helping to fund innovation in UK aquaculture.

Seafood Issues Groups

The ACIG is one of a number of Seafish-facilitated discussion forums which focus on the integrity of the seafood supply chain. These groups provide a discussion platform for some of the most important issues facing the seafood industry, particularly in relation to the responsible sourcing of seafood. They are an opportunity for all those involved in the seafood supply chain to reach a consensus on common issues.
