Results and Impact Academics from 4 UK Universities (Stirling, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Exeter) together with CEFAS and 3 Universities from East China Sea (Ningbo, Zhejiang and Shanghai) co-organised a conference to exchange knowledge on challenges faced by the aquaculture sector including breeding and genetics, health and environment. The event was attended by academics, students and industry. This led to in depth discussion on future research collaborations to tackle some of the discussed challenges.
