Aquaculture researchers’ needs analysis

We recently received this request and are passing it along to our network.

Dear Sir/Madam,

We are contacting you in relation to a new EC funded project called Vocational Aqualabs, which aims to identify the key generic skills which are required by aquaculture researchers. New knowledge is essential to the future sustainability of the sector and thus highly skilled researchers are a crucial component.

We are currently carrying out a needs analysis and would like to ask you to take a moment to compete our online survey. It only takes 10 minutes and your input will be used to identify priorities for skill provision. The survey results will dictate what new training material and courses will be developed and carried out in the project to upskill researchers. 

If you are a researcher in the sector go to this link:


If you are an industry stakeholder go to this link:

We would be very grateful if you could also bring these surveys to the attention of your colleagues. For more information on the Vocational Aqualabs project please visit

Best regards,
Vocational Aqualabs consortium
