Mr. Laurance Reed

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what research his Department is undertaking into the development of marine fish-farming techniques.

My Department is carrying out basic research on techniques for the artificial rearing of flat fish such as plaice, soles and turbot, and also of a range of commercially valuable molluscs and crustaceans. Development work is being carried on by the White Fish Authority.
