Launched on 1 June 2018, the Scottish Entanglement Alliance (SEA) is a partnership between six organisations dedicated to promoting and protecting Scotland’s wildlife, heritage and sustainable marine industries.
The economic and community development agency will host a stand at Aquaculture UK 2018 on Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 May, along with Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service (SMAS), Scottish Development International, Scottish Enterprise and Marine Scotland.
A £200,000 grant scheme will help seaweed researchers and industry work together to ensure sustainable growth in the industry.
The seaweed sector is one of the fastest growing in aquaculture but a lack of research globally has contributed to problems arising from crop disease and the adverse effects of introducing invasive species.
