Salmon with chips

State-of-the art genetic techniques are putting a Scottish salmon breeder ahead of competitors around the world in the race to identify healthier, disease-resistant salmon for breeding.

As the result of a project backed by the Technology Strategy Board, Stirling-based Landcatch Natural Selection has developed a genomic ‘chip' for salmon.  

Landcatch Natural Selection has been actively involved with the Knowledge Transfer Network for many years. KTN support  has helped Landcatch to access funding, develop partnerships and continue to successfully innovate.
