With a growing population, stagnating global fish captures and changing consumer habits reaching out for more sustainable food resources, aquaculture is increasingly considered as a solution to meet the world’s growing food needs. EURONEWS has visited the EATiP member fish farm Aquanaria to have a look at how advancements in fish farming technology are creating new opportunities to produce more sustainably and efficiently.
On October 10th, Catherine Pons participated at the SeaTechWeek in Brest (France), an international marine science & technology week on marine bioresources.
Norway was guest of honour and several talks and workshops were organised on the latest technologies and methods for better management of marine resources in Norway.
The event lasted 5 days and many parallel sessions took place on Technology, Socio-economics, Management & Preservation, Bio process, Regulation, Environment and Fisheries & Aquaculture.
EATiP was invited to the second round table plenary session, entitled ‘Training and Trade’ and to the ‘Sustainable Aquaculture’.
