The Grower, October 2021

With sadly still no ASSG conference this year the October issue of The Grower has appeared later than usual so with even more up to date news.

With COP 26 opening later this month in Scotland Nick Lake discusses this in his CEO’s column and possibly stirs some comment.  Also in this issue:

  • New developments in farming mussels in the Cromarty Firth in association with Shetland
  • News of in-person shellfish conference to be held at Neeltje Jans, The Netherlands
  • News that NORA 4 will now be online
  • Seafood promotion in Mull
  • Opportunities with Lantra traineeships
  • Book review – Molluscan Shellfish Aquaculture
  • Crown Estate Scotland (CES) – new report on prospects for expansion in Scottish shellfish sector

In short plenty to read  – enjoy!
