Introduction key features

AquaTT is a European network consisting of universities, students, producers and industry members involved in the aquaculture sector. The network supports the aquaculture industry through the provision of support services and through participation in, and coordination of EU projects and initiatives in the areas of education, training and technology transfer.

AquaTT is a non-profit making organisation and all money generated is used directly to support the industry.

Origins

AquaTT was founded in 1992 under the EU COMETT programme as the University Enterprise Training Partnership (UETP) for the European Aquaculture Industry. The initial proposal arose from the identification of a clear need to systematise, coordinate and develop the training requirements of the industry through a single body.
