The University of Stirling hosted a second Seafood Consumption Initiative Workshop on 14-15th June 2018 to help create an interdisciplinary platform to respond to calls under the UK Global Challenges Research Fund.
The University of Stirling, along with 10 other organisations from Europe, the US and Canada, is a partner in the newly-launched GAIN (Green Aquaculture Innovation) project, led by the University of Venice with the dual objectives of increasing production and competitiveness of the industry, while ensuring sustainability and compliance with EU regulations on food safety and environment.
Professor Dave Little attended the Southeast Asia Fisheries and Aquaculture Initiative (SAFAI) launch as a part of a newly formed Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) to provide guidance and expertise in support of the initiative. The initiative is led by the Monterey Bay Aquarium and the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.
Professor David Little was recently interviewed by James Wright for the Global Aquaculture Advocate website and magazine. The interview considers current trends in aquaculture development and issues such as the attention that is now given to farmed animal welfare and how that is changing practices in both Europe and Asia.
