About the ARCH-UK:
ARCH-UK is an academia led network that connects the UK aquaculture community. We sign-post research council funding (BBSRC/NERC), create events to develop skills and facilitate innovative collaborations. ARCH-UK is made up of eight working groups, each includes a wide range of UK aquaculture stakeholders from academia, industry and policy. Working Groups organise workshops based on feedback from our extensive and varied member base.
The ARCH-UK Management Team consists of four academic Grant Holders from universities across the UK and two Coordinators. Management is split between two offices, one at the University of Stirling, the other at Swansea University. The Grant Holders and Coordinators communicate regularly, although WG 1, 2, 5, 6 and 8 is managed from the University of Stirling and WG 3, 4, 7 are managed from Swansea University.
