Win an iPad at AQUA 2019 for best student poster!

Lindsay Laird 2019

The award, now entering its 12th year, was established by AquaTT and AMC Ltd to recognise students who produce the best research poster in aquaculture and related fields. Winners to date have come from as far afield as Germany, Malta and Brazil. All student posters submitted for AQUA 2019 are eligible.

Lindsay Laird was a leading aquaculture academic who worked closely with the expanding aquaculture industry on various aspects of salmon production. Lindsay’s university teaching, research and industry leadership, all while raising a family with her husband Monty, meant that by the time of her early death in 2001 she had become a role model for many budding aquaculture researchers. The eponymous award was established in her honour.

AquaTT and AMC are delighted to announce that this year's award will be presented by Lindsay's daughter Dr Camilla Priede, herself a lecturer at Sheffield University.

More information on Lindsay and the award can be found here and don’t forget to drop by booth no. 33 at AQUA 2019, to say hello to the AquaTT staff!
