EU EATiP Day presentations (Aquaculture Europe ’19)

As a response to the call for food and feed security, parallel to the needed climate, circularity, spatial planning and biodiversity actions, attention at this year’s EU EATiP day was given to low-trophic aquaculture. With its potential to create a high output while minimizing its impact, new value chains in aquaculture based on shellfish, algae or other low-trophic organisms offer a high potential for Europe.

Representatives from DG RTD and DG MARE pointed at the importance of these timely discussions, against the background of the Horizon Europe framework programme and of the revision of the Strategic Guidelines for Sustainable Development of EU Aquaculture. At the same time, EATiP launched its Position Paper and Recommendations for research and innovation in the sector. The latest results from a number of EU funded projects were combined with considerations from feed suppliers, seafood producers, market analysts and NGO’s. Together with reflections from the panel and from the audience in the room, these provide important input when planning for future collaborative efforts. A final report will be published soon.

EATiP Day Presentations

SESSION 1: Setting the scene – How can European research and innovation stimulate sustainability and competitiveness of the aquaculture sector?

SESSION 2 – Low trophic production technologies and new feed resources

SESSION 3 – Efficient management systems to optimize sustainability and competitiveness.

Focus of EU EATiP Day at AE19: Promoting food security and new value chains in aquaculture

This year’s Aquaculture Europe 19′ event will be held in Berlin, Germany, 7-10 October 2019.  ‘Our Future: Growing from Water’ is the theme of the annual event, which will be held in Berlin, Germany this year 7-10 October 2019.

For more information about the AE2019 event, please visit this link.

On the EU EATiP Day, the focus will be on aquaculture with a low impact and high output – a sector that can promote food security and develop new value chains. The session on October 9 will gather existing expertise in this field and discuss the critical knowledge gaps that remain to be filled.

Speakers from DG RTD will set the need for aquaculture research and innovation in a Horizon Europe perspective, whereas DG MARE will introduce the process for reviewing the current aquaculture strategic guidelines.

Growing need for aquatic products – EU funded projects will pitch results

The potential of low-trophic species as human food and aquaculture feed will be reflected upon by feed companies, aquaculture producers, service suppliers and market analysts.

EU funded projects AQUAVITAE, AQUAOLIVE, MACRO CASCADE, SEAFOODtomorrow, GAIN and VIVALDI will pitch their latest results and how they can serve a growing need for new aquatic products.

Important questions to be answered

What measures need to be taken to support a competitive aquaculture with a low carbon footprint? Which technologies are considered to be essential? How to select new appropriate species? And how far can/should we go to feed carnivorous fish with plant material? Answers to this and more will be provided by project leaders and industry representatives during two consequent panel debates.

The EC and EATiP wish to use this feedback to stimulate future collaborative actions, and hence support the ambition of European aquaculture to contribute to the global Zero Hunger vision.

Join us in Berlin for the EU EATiP Day, and visit our Booth #149!

 

EU-EATiP Day at Aquaculture Europe ‘19 – “Low impact – high output”

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?

Session content

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!
