The economic and community development agency will host a stand at Aquaculture UK 2018 on Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 May, along with Scottish Manufacturing Advisory Service (SMAS), Scottish Development International, Scottish Enterprise and Marine Scotland.
A £200,000 grant scheme will help seaweed researchers and industry work together to ensure sustainable growth in the industry.
