Research Aquaria

A closer look at the Roslin Institute's aquaculture facilities.

Aquaculture Genetics Research Facility

The AGRF facility is located beside the Roslin Institute.
Roslin's state-of-the-art aquarium, equipped with hatchery and disease challenge facilities, is integral to our groundbreaking research.

Aquatic Invertebrate System (AIS)

Young Pacific whiteleg shrimp are kept in submerged pots before being transferred to larger aquariums as larger juveniles.
Our exciting new aquarium system can hold prawns, oysters, mussels and many other aquatic invertebrates.

Above, you'll find links to pages containing information about the aquaculture facilities based out of the Roslin Institute. These facilities are of vital importance to the research we undertake into species such as salmonids, tilapia, oysters, and shrimp. Many of these pages are still in development due to ongoing projects at the Roslin Institute, and we look forward to sharing more information and photos from the facilities with you soon! 

You can find more information about the work we do via our Research page.
