National Aquaculture Technology and Innovation Hub
The National Aquaculture Technology and Innovation Hub (NATIH) will be a pioneering innovation centre set-up to drive the UK’s ambitions to become a world leader in modern aquaculture practice.
Aquaculture is a rapidly expanding industry, with a global growth rate of 8%, while in Scotland, the sector has ambitious plans to double its output by 2030. This gives us a unique opportunity to increase the economic, social and environmental benefits of aquaculture.
It will use the latest research and tackle the major challenges facing aquaculture producers, such as fish welfare and managing environmental impacts, to make sure that the UK leads and innovates the aquaculture industry.
NATIH is due to open in 2024 and is a £17 million investment by the Stirling and Clackmannanshire City Region Deal.
