Aquaculture

The ISC have extensive experience in cultivation of macroalgae, particularly native kelps and Palmaria palmata: in the laboratory, in shore-based tanks, and on longlines at sea. Additionally we have experience in Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA), using waste from fish/crustacean/shellfish cultivation to enhance macroalgal growth and improve environmental performance.

We can provide various services, including: seeded material for out-planting; advice on cultivation techniques and site selection; growth analysis and monitoring; and new species development R&D.
