Short summary: The Liverpool Aquafarm project aims to create an off-grip, functioning, pilot-scale fish farm on a disused Liverpool Dock. This will be a focus for advanced aquaculture R&D, education and local food production (fresh fish, seaweed and shellfish) in a disused urban space, delivering new projects, funding opportunities, PhDs, new jobs and distinctive commercial activity. We are looking for parties interested in developing and proving technologies and approaches in this working pilot plant. These may include sensor and telemetry, water treatment technologies, companies interested in Urban Farming and disruptive supply chain and companies dealing with renewable energy technologies.
