Lochaber Chamber of Commerce’s Ideas Week returned after a two-year
hiatus, with events focusing on aquaculture and tourism.

Aquaculture Day, held on Wednesday November 17 at Ben Nevis Distillery, celebrated innovation in this key growth industry for Lochaber and was targeted towards sector professionals interested in aquaculture innovations for sustainability, training and recruiting for tomorrow’s aquaculture sector.

The event was presented in collaboration with the Sustainable Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC).

The free one-day event highlighted some of the sustainable innovations
currently being developed by the sector as well as covering career prospects, recruitment challenges and opportunities.

Donald Waring, learning and development manager at MOWI, gave an
informative presentation highlighting the range of career and progression
opportunities on offer locally and further afield.

Anyone with an interest in aquaculture was invited to go along, with the
aim of highlighting the evolving skills required to fuel growth, as well as
shining a spotlight on some of the emerging ideas and processes that
could transform fish farming.
