With the SAIC internships programme, life sciences students have the chance to spend a three-month paid internship with Scottish aquaculture businesses large or small – or with SAIC itself.

The first step to encouraging new generations into the sector is making them aware of the wealth of career opportunities that exist

During the last two years, SAIC has recruited summer interns to undertake 8-10 week placements related to skills, careers and knowledge transfer - conducted mostly online. 

The internships combined knowledge transfer, education and public awareness of the aquaculture industry. Topics focused on opportunities within Scottish aquaculture, promotion of the industry as a career destination, the use of technology and data, knowledge transfer, marketing and communications.
