Innovations for Irish Aquaculture: Short Video Interviews – Part 8

19/11/2020

Learn more about public perception of aquaculture in Scotland which could inform communication and marketing activity.  

As Ireland continues in its second lockdown of 2020, we are continuing to interview key individuals whose expertise and knowledge could be of relevance and interest to the Irish Aquaculture community. If there are any topics or speakers who you would like to hear from, please get in touch.

In previous weeks, we have looked at topics varying from fish health (Part 1), seaweed (Part 2), and genetics (Part 3), filtration systems (Part 6) to projects within the aquaculture space (Part 7) and services that are available to support aquaculture businesses (Part 4 and Part 5). This week, we take a slightly different approach and hear about public perception of aquaculture in Scotland. This is a slightly longer interview than normal as our expert had a lot to say about the results that came out of the study.

We would like to introduce you to Sofia Franco, who is a Lecturer in Aquaculture Governance and Innovation in the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS). She has a background in aquaculture and fisheries with an interest in social sciences. She outlines distinct differences in public perception between finfish and shellfish farming, and aquaculture versus fisheries. 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?

If you would like to be interviewed and featured on the IATiP website, we would love to hear from you.  For all enquiries, please contact Intrigo Senior Project Manager, Georgia Bayliss-Brown, by email (georgia@intrigo.eu).
