Project ID



Offshore/high energy aquaculture initiatives are increasing globally but relevant production biology research may or may not be aligned with technology, commercial needs or offshore/high energy environments.

The aim is to identify knowledge gaps and prioritise BE CRC research by scoping research relevant to key salmon production biology challenges and to available and emerging technology. Scope will include consumer trends in food as it relates to salmon products.

The benefits will be immediately relevant to offshore salmon farming in Australia and NZ.
