About the Shellfish Centre: The Shellfish Centre is a research & innovation initiative supporting development of the shellfish sector in Wales. The Centre will collaborate with businesses to deliver science to support growth. The main focus of the project is shellfish aquaculture and the related supply chain, with scope also for research to support new/underexploited shellfisheries and aquaculture of non-shellfish species that are compatible with shellfish production.
Aims of the workshop: This will be the first in a series of workshops that will run throughout the project. This first workshop is focused on identification of opportunities and constraints for growth for the shellfish production sector in Wales. All research activity undertaken by the Shellfish Centre will be within a series of well-defined collaborative projects with industrial partners – this is also an opportunity to identify research needs and develop new collaborations.
