Over the past 50 years aquaculture has been the fastest growing animal food-production sector world-wide. With a need to produce 70% more food to feed an additional 2.3 billion people by 2050 it offers great potential. The aquaculture program is a leader in the development of alternative species for temperate aquaculture while also meeting the needs of established aquaculture industries. Research is aimed at a step change in production while minimising impacts on the environment. With over 20 scientists and technicians the program has a large portfolio of projects operating at a local, national and international level.
