We are developing materials for students and teachers to assist them with the video competition. Here you will be able to download factsheets, booklets etc, to aid you in developing your videos.

Each partner will upload their flyers and information on their competition kick off.

With global over fishing and the depletion of fish stocks, aquaculture is now becoming a sustainable way of supplying food across the globe and a lot of the fish we eat is farmed rather than caught by traditional methods.  The AquaSpace ‘Where does the fish for dinner come from’ video competition can help to educate students on the aquaculture sector, the marine environment and sustainability, among others.

The competition is being run in: Crete, Denmark, France, Hungary, Italy, Ireland, Norway, Portugal, Spain and The United Kingdom. The competition is held on a national level therefore participants will only compete with other participants from the same country.

The theme for the video is: ‘Where does the fish for dinner come from?’

The Irish competition kicked off in September 2016. The other countries contests kick off in September 2017.

Keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for information about your national contest!

See the videos that were entered into the Irish contest below as well as the resources developed for teachers and students.
