Promoting food security and new value chains in aquaculture
The cultivation of aquatic products at lower levels in the food chain present a high potential both in providing healthy food for all and in the combat against climate change. What are the most promising technologies and pathways to capitalize their output? Can current innovations be the game-changers of tomorrow? What are the critical knowledge gaps to reach a competitive aquaculture production of low-trophic species?
Several EU-funded projects have investigated production routes, technologies and management systems for the cultivation of new food, feed or other high value compounds of aquatic origin. The search for alternative feed ingredients for use in traditional aquaculture have also subject of several international studies.
Together with the DG-RTD Healthy Oceans & Seas Unit of the European Commission, EATiP invites project investigators and industry representatives to present major achievements and views on how to stimulate growth in this part of the sector. Pitching industry considerations and results from EU funded projects will be combined with panel discussions that aim to put forward some critical recommendations for future R&I.
Join the debate and engage in the future development of low-impact / high-output aquaculture!
The latest AQUAEXCEL2020 outputs will be presented and discussed at an interactive brokerage session, creating a forum for engagement and exchange between aquaculture researchers and potential industry beneficiaries of these innovative aquaculture outcomes.
Meet up on October 9 (10:30-17:30) in the Berlin Convention Centre, Room: Exhibition 2. This is an open session (no conference badge is needed).
EATiP will be an exhibitor at the Aquaculture Europe trade show. Come and meet us at Booth #149!
