The judging panel for the 2019 Aquaculture Awards has been announced with the ceremony to take place on 29 May at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The panel comprises industry experts Alex Adrian, aquaculture operations manager of Crown Estate Scotland; Martin Gill, head of aquaculture and fisheries at Lloyds Register; Rob Fletcher, senior editor of The Fish Site; Nicki Holmyard, head of corporate communications for Offshore Shellfish; Professor Dave Little, head of research at the Institute of Aquaculture at the University of Stirling and event organiser Susan Tinch.

Created as an annual event following the success of the 2018 Aquaculture Awards at Aquaculture UK, the competition is open to anyone involved in the industry and features categories on applied research, animal welfare, international impact and more.

“I’m delighted to be on a team with such high-profile figures,” said Rob Fletcher. “The breadth of experience that the judges can bring into play will allow them to make highly qualified decisions on which entries deserve a place on the shortlist for each of our eight categories.”

Entries and nominations from both commercial and research sectors are welcomed. The closing date is 1 March and the shortlists will be announced in early April.
