Innovations for Irish Aquaculture: Short Video Interviews – Part 4

19/08/2020

Learn more about organisations that are providing services to aquaculture businesses, to support the reduction of their environmental impact as well as to support those seeking commercial applications for marine biomass.

IATiP are committed to sharing exciting innovations and technologies with you, the Irish aquaculture community. Providing a temporary replacement of the IATiP conference, we have been interviewing the conference speakers and are sharing these recordings on the IATiP website. This is enabling us to continue bringing state-of-the-art ideas from Ireland and beyond directly to you, in a format that you can watch at a time that suits you.

As promised in the previous edition, we are continuing focusing on a range of sectors and topics related to Irish Aquaculture. Having covered fish health (Part 1), seaweed (Part 2) and genetics (Part 3) in previous issues,  in this issue we showcase two examples of research services that are available for aquaculture businesses.  

First, we would like to introduce you to Dr Eoghan Clifford, Senior Lecturer in civil engineering at NUI Galway. His background in water and wastewater treatment led him to work on a few aquaculture focused projects, most recently the NEPTUNUS project, that is looking at improving the sustainability of aquaculture. He explains how he is working with marine seafood producers to improve process efficiency, e.g. in aeration and pumping systems, and emissions reduction on farms.  To find out more, watch the video, by clicking here.

And the second showcase interview is that held with Dr Tim Yeomans, Centre Manager at Shannon ABC. Shannon ABC is an Enterprise Ireland Technology Gateway and “use-inspired” research centre that partners with industry within the field of bioresources. They help companies identify commercially-viable applications of their biomass, and have experience working with fish waste and oyster powder with the majority of their research has been in seaweed and microalgae.  To find out more, watch the video, by clicking here.

Do you have knowledge to share?  Are you looking for a solution to help your aquaculture business?
