Do you work or have expertise in organic aquaculture?

Our Aquaculture Standards Committee needs you!

We are seeking candidates with skills and experience - technical, production or academic - in organic aquaculture ideally from direct involvement in production or processing of fish, bivalves or seaweed. We are looking for people with:

  • knowledge about the organic aquaculture sector
  • empathy with our aims and objectives
  • experience of working to reach collective decisions.

Our standards committees provide the technical and industry knowledge which supports our standards development and making recommendations to our Standards Board.

Joining a Soil Association standards committee is in a personal capacity, not as a company representative and issues discussed are confidential. Membership brings many benefits, such as networking with like-minded professionals, career-boosting experience, opportunities to apply knowledge and learn about industry details which are normally restricted – as well as contributing to the development of Soil Association standards.

We welcome applications from people working in all sizes of business – large, small or micro – as well as those with other experience of the aquaculture industry. By becoming involved you will add your voice to the one hundred-plus professionals involved in Soil Association standards development.

The Committee meets up to twice a year, usually in Edinburgh. We would like successful candidates to attend a meeting of the Committee on Monday 7th September in Edinburgh. This is a voluntary position, with travel and subsistence costs reimbursed. For more details please send your CV and covering note to Isabel Griffiths, Standards Manager at by Friday 21st August or call Jen Collins on 0117 314 5178 for more information. We will be holding telephone interviews in the last week of August.
