Dr Gregor McEwan founded Modail Mara out of a sense of frustration. He had been working for many years in academia and found there was a wealth of knowledge that was not getting to the aquaculture industry.
While academic research creates valuable insights and fundamental knowledge for aquaculture in general, there is often a gap between scientific outcomes and individual farmers. Modail Mara aims to fill this gap by bringing scientific knowledge and techniques to provide customised solutions for aquaculturalists.
Dr McEwan partnered with Dr Vince Repaci to guide the process of bridging science and business, and with Dr James McEwan to extend the scientific coverage to the water environment.
