Key topics on the application of genetic technologies for the improvement of aquaculture will include:

  • Finfish and shellfish breeding
  • Applied genomics in aquaculture
  • Genome editing
The format will have invited talks from leading researchers and and industry panel discussion.



For early career researchers (researchers within 10 years of PhD graduation without a permanent position) there will be a session of 'flash talks' (5 minutes). 

To express interest in presenting, please contact Ross Houston, scientist with The Roslin Institute.


The conference is organised by The Roslin Institute and Aquaculture Research Collaborative Hub UK (ARCH-UK).

ARCH-UK is an academia-led network, funded by UKRI, developing a UK aquaculture community and made up of eight working groups which include a wide range of aquaculture stakeholders from academia, industry and policy. 

Working Groups organise events based on feedback from our extensive member base.
