A Scottish pavilion will return to Aqua Nor this summer, showcasing the nation’s blue economy expertise and offering aquaculture supply chain companies a chance to do business on an international stage once again.

From 22 to 24 August, a Team Scotland partnership comprising the Sustainable Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC), Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), and Marine Scotland will provide a platform for Scottish businesses to showcase expertise, products and services at the global aquaculture event in Trondheim, Norway.

The three-day event is estimated to draw around 25,000 visitors from more than 75 nations.

Scottish businesses active in the aquaculture supply chain are invited to join the pavilion and take advantage of the chance to be part of the collaborative delegation with support through shared exhibition space, meeting rooms, presentation facilities and other activities.

Aqua Nor is the world’s largest aquaculture technology exhibition, bringing together the latest products, processes and services across finfish, shellfish and, increasingly, seaweed species. First held in 1979, all the world’s major aquaculture nations attend.
