Research fellow, University of Stirling

Richard Newton is a research fellow in the Institute of Aquaculture at the University of Stirling. He has worked in the industry for 20years in academic and commercial roles but now works on promoting circular economy initiatives in aquaculture value chains, linking environmental and socio-economic gains through comprehensive sustainability assessments. His main focus is to improve the resource efficiency of aquaculture production through various means to "eco-intensify" food production. He has worked across Europe and Asia's main centres of aquaculture production investigating many of the species that underpin food security and contribute to rural economies.
