The British Trout Association is a partner in the BiFFiO project, an example of industrial symbiosis, initiated from aquaculture, agriculture and renewable energy industries for a sustainable waste management by producing renewable energy from mixed aquaculture and agriculture waste, in addition to production of fertilizer, which will be used in the agriculture sector. The project is developing energy efficient, cost effective, easy to implement and easy to operate biogas reactor technology. Follow the link www.biffio.com for full information. The project will be completed in January 2017.
To coincide with National Seafood Week, the BTA launched a “Trout in Ten” social media campaign issuing a daily trout recipe which can be prepared in 10 minutes and under. View our posts and tweets here:
