Aqualife Services, based in Stirling, is the largest dedicated fish vaccination company in the world.

Business Challenge

Aqualife recognised the need to address issues with the current vaccination process which can lead to repetitive strain amongst staff and limited accuracy in vaccinating the fish.


Interface facilitated a partnership between Aqualife and the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) and a project looking at design options for a new vaccination gun was funded through the UWS Inspired Scheme.   It soon became evident that a much bigger project was evolving looking at the whole fish handling process.  Aqualife have embarked on a two year £100k Knowledge Transfer Partnership with UWS to develop the ideas.
