Aquaculture UK, the biannual fish farming event held in Aviemore, Scotland, between May 23-24, 2018, is set to attract the biggest and widest array of visitors in recent years.

Hosted by Benchmark Holdings PLC, who are “a pioneering, innovation company operating in the aquaculture, agriculture and animal health sectors”, the show will cover every aspect of aquaculture and boasts to provide the best commercial and technical advice for fish farmers, farm managers and aquaculture professionals.

In this edition of International Aquafeed you will see numerous news stories and features, especially surrounding technology where a line has been added in blue depicting where that company will be hosting a stand at the show. We have also featured a main focus interview with prominent show organiser Matthew Colvan as our main interview spread this month, where he talks about his history and the work that has gone into organising this year’s show.
