Aquaculture for all

Shortlist announced for 2024 Aquaculture Awards

Atlantic Salmon Technology & equipment Awards +5 more

The shortlist for the Aquaculture Awards 2024, announced today, has been drawn from a record number of entries, up more than 20 per cent on last year.

The winners of the 2024 Aquaculture Awards will be announced on 15 May at the Aquaculture UK exhibition in Scotland

The Innovation Award is probably the most hotly contested and features Ace Aquatec, Bluegreen, Otanics Technology, Otaq Group, Tritonia Scientific and WellFish Tech

With almost 100 nominations reflecting the wide range of talent across the sector, the judges had a particularly difficult task selecting winners this year.

The awards, to be presented on May 15 at a gala dinner during Aquaculture UK in Aviemore, include 13 separate categories – covering everything from innovation to community initiative, sustainability to animal welfare, and the best of the suppliers and new startups.

They recognise both hands-on diligence and high-tech brilliance, honouring those individuals and businesses whose endeavours set them apart from their peers.

And this year, the aquaculture community can get involved in the judging process by voting for the winner of the Outstanding Contribution award, chosen from four shortlisted candidates, each of whom has carved out a distinguished career in their field.

Cheri Arvonio, awards director, said in a press release: “The Aquaculture Awards champion the achievements of the sector over the past year and highlight the exceptional people making a difference, whether at home or abroad.

“We’re thrilled with the level of engagement this year and look forward to welcoming all those in the running, our award sponsors and some 600 guests for a night of celebration, socialising and Highland fun.”
