Lindsay Laird Award

Lindsay Laird Award


In 2008, AquaTT and Aqualex Multimedia Consortium (AMC) Ltd established an award in honour of Dr. Lindsay Laird for the most innovative poster (in English) submitted by a student, which concerns research in any one of the following areas:

  • Environmental Impacts in aquaculture
  • New species
  • Hatcheries/early life history
  • Stock production
  • Fish diseases
  • New technologies
  • Genetics/genomics

Publishers Wiley/Blackwell also gave their support to this initiative and every year have added to the value of the award by donating a selection of aquaculture publications chosen by the winner.
