Regular readers of our Fish Update website will notice that we have had a radical makeover!

Not only has our website undergone a transformation, but we have decided to rename it too, in line with our monthly magazine title, Fish Farmer.

The changes mean that the latest news is displayed better, and our news archive will be more readily accessible, as will back issues of the magazine.

We have kept the menu of categories brief, but we welcome your feedback so please let us know whether you find the new site easy to navigate or not.

There is a platform for opinion, which will feature our regular Fish Farmer columnists, and will also be open to industry views and occasional posts from the editor on the issues of the day.

The website will also feature some of the top monthly stories and interviews from Fish Farmer magazine in the hope of reaching an ever wider audience in the aquaculture industry, both in Scotland and worldwide.

The original Fish Update website was launched in 2002 at the Aquaculture International exhibition, in Glasgow, by then editor Bob Kennedy (pictured centre with former Fisheries Minister, the Earl of Lindsay).

We hope you enjoy using the new website and we look forward to your comments.
