Applications that cover the integration of multiple species, such as multitrophic aquaculture, are encouraged.

Collaboration Agreements must be complete within four weeks of the award of funding, and we would advise applicants to start working on these at their earliest opportunity.

Successful projects must be ready to start by 1 June 2022.
