To bring together researchers working on fish and shellfish disease with those working in other areas that could contribute to building UK capacity in fish health.

Key aims

  • Prioritise the research gaps in fish and shellfish health and disease, including environmental interactions.
  • Promote collaboration between the BBSRC, NERC and other relevant research communities
  • Provide a focus for discussion on novel technologies/technology development
  • Facilitate new multidisciplinary research partnerships that could lead to collaborative bids for funding
  • Encourage the development of a strong UK wide research community


The formal output of the workshop will include a written report of the discussion including prioritisation of the research gaps. However, in addition, we anticipate that new multi-disciplinary collaborations will be formed and novel ideas stimulated, potentially leading to applications for future funding support from the UK and Europe.
