The December edition of Fish Farmer magazine has now gone to press and you can view the online version here.
As the industry nervously awaits the results of the Brexit talks, we look at what the implications will be for the seafood trade between Britain and Europe, once the transitional period comes to an end on 1 January – whether or not there is a deal.
Also in the December issue we meet Tavish Scott, CEO of the Scottish Salmon Producers’ Organisation. What he has to say about the challenges facing the fish farming sector – and how to approach the industry’s critics – is essential reading.
Tim Huntington of Poseidon Aquatic Resources explains the thinking behind an ambitious new English Aquaculture Strategy, which projects possible growth of up to ten times for the sector.
Dr Martin Jaffa looks at the dilemmas around acoustic deterrent devices, and Nicki Holmyard considers the drive to market shellfish to consumers for Christmas and beyond
Also in this issue, you can read about how genetic selection is being applied in practice; the technology of fish handling; and how advances are under way in the monitoring of cleaner fish health. December’s Fish Farmer also includes comment from Nick Joy and, of course, the latest aquaculture and processing news from around the UK, Europe and worldwide.
