Aquaculture workshop moves online

23 September 2020

The BIM aquaculture workshop being run by aquaculture accelerator Hatch, and funded under the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund is taking place next month.  This year's event will be held entirely online. The original plan had been to host it in the RDI Hub in Killorglin, Co Kerry.

Fifteen participants from 10 Irish-based companies have been selected and will have access to investors, fin-tech and other specialists over the duration of the workshop.

This is the third such aquaculture workshop to take place since 2018. It is hoped that companies participating will in time provide products and services to Ireland's aquaculture sector leading to greater efficiencies and profitability.

Participant companies cover areas as diverse as sea lice treatment, aeration technology and blockchain analysis.
