Aquaculture lunch with Lantra Scotland Chairman and industry figures

Representatives from the aquaculture industry, training providers, the Scottish Government, and SAIC met earlier this year to look at ways in which they could promote careers in aquaculture to the next generation of new talent.

Hosted by Henry Graham of Lantra Scotland, the Chairman’s lunch brought together industry stakeholders to discuss the uptake of Modern Apprenticeships in Aquaculture, emerging skills gaps, perceptions of careers in Scotland’s rural economy, and the need for a co-ordinated approach to communicate the benefits of working in the industry.

The Lantra team will now analyse the day’s discussions and use those insights to support skills development in Scottish aquaculture.
