CLIMATE CHANGE CHALLENGES DISCUSSED BY IRISH FISH FARMERS
Climate change challenges discussed by Irish fish farmers. Climate change, survivability and genetics were among some of the challenges facing the Irish aquaculture sector being discussed at the recent Irish Aquaculture Technology and Innovation Platform (IATIP) seminar.
The networks or platforms have been established to help identify the latest aquaculture research in Ireland and Europe to share with the industry and to inform aquaculture policy decisions being made at European level.
The Irish branch of the network, established by Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), is one of 14 such networks in Europe and is overseen by the European Aquaculture Technology and Innovation Platform. 35 delegates including aquaculture producers, researchers and policy makers attended the event held in West Dublin earlier this month.
