The Aquaculture Europe conference, a four-day event which took place between 12-15 April 2021 brought together stakeholders from many diverse disciplines to discuss and debate cross cut-ting issues such as new circular economies, life-long health and environmentally sustainable production. AquaVIP research and outreach activities were represented by all partners.
As stated by European Aquaculture Society: “Aquaculture can take the lead in the Blue – Green Bio-Economy and is well placed to lead by example with new technologies such as land-based marine aquaponics, large-scale recirculating marine farms and innovative, integrated freshwater initiatives on brown field sites. When it comes to having a societal impact, recent research has shown that aquaculture products, from sea-weed to salmon, should be included as part of a balanced diet from the first 1000 days right through to promoting healthy ageing.”
Numerous sessions during RAS workshop, on circular economy, emerging species, nutrition, hatchery technologies and practices, disease prevention and treatment, IMTA and aquaponics, climate change, offshore aquaculture and multiuse of space, recirculating aquaculture systems, precision aquaculture, fish welfare, macro- and micro-algae, selective breeding, product quality, value and markets, shellfish production, restoration and preservation, and genomic research proved have proved the importance, diversity of problems to be solved and and above all, countless applications for us all.
Apart from gaining new knowledge, ideas and cooperation AquaVIP partners contributed to the event with the project overall presentation and research results:
