Aquaculture is a global growth industry and is expected to become the primary source of fish for direct human consumption by 2030. Products range from fish and shellfish to biotech and pharmaceuticals.
The Milford Haven Waterway has the potential to develop a thriving aquaculture
industry which would deliver increased local economic development, job growth and significant environmental benefits. Potential involvement could see the Port create facilities onshore, as well as supporting the development of aquaculture farms in the Haven and around the coast.
A great deal of time and research was dedicated to learning more about the opportunities posed by this sector in 2016 and work will continue in earnest throughout 2017.
