BIM ARC launch 2018

“By using virtuality reality headsets, students will be able to plunge into the depths of the ocean experience and learn about the environment in which salmon and mussels are farmed in Ireland.”

ARC was launched by marine minister Michael Creed who was joined by Felix Leinemann, head of Unit, Aquaculture and Maritime Spatial Planning (EC) and  BIM chairman Kieran Calnan. ARC is funded by the European Commission and is part of a wider #farmedintheEU campaign that promotes aquaculture in Europe.
