Aquaculture in Unst

Monday, 18 March, 2013 - 09:30 to Friday, 22 March, 2013 - 15:30

We are organising a fact finding day for our secondary pupils to enable them to find out about the Aquaculture industry on the island of Unst. We will visit a large multinational salmon farm at their hatchery and sea sites, also a small locally owned organic salmon farm and a local mussel farm. Our findings will form a video and report to share with our partner schools in Norway, America and Ghana. This will also link with a school trip to visit our partner school in Norway this June where we will have the opportunity to visit the research facility of the salmon feed company used by local salmon farmers.
