12/02/2016: Video: Unsung business hero Katherine Hawes, AwF (Australia) Chairman



A few words from Aquaculture without Frontiers (Australia) Chairman, Katherine Hawes, who also runs her own legal firm.

With three divisions to her business, plus a teaching role in tertiary education, she is as busy as humanly possible. She shares about her business life, as well as her passions for fast cars and justice for all. Being on global maritime legal committees and attending aquaculture conferences are part of her life.

Zhengchang company profile

Established in 1918, Zhengchang has made constant innovations in feed machinery industry and accumulated a wealth of experience in tackling the various challenges facing feed companies and, more importantly, is able to offer a range of comprehensive solutions. ZCME has now evolved into China’s largest manufacture of feed machinery and has 16 branches in China with over 1300 staff and more than thirty offices all over the world.
 

Zhengchang to date has successfully constructed more than 2000 turnkey projects around the world, covering the fields of poultry and livestock feed, aquatic feed, pet food, premix feed, sawdust pellets, fertilizer, silo storage, pasture, electrical control and garbage treatment etc. ZCME projects are designed to deliver to the client higher feed quality, higher overall capacity and greater profits.

Zhengchang have overcome many challenges for our customers and accumulated rich experience over the past 90 years. We are now making great endeavors to apply our latest achievements to feed, pasture, environment protection, fertiliser, and sawdust shaping industries.

Zhengchang is more than a professional partner who can provide advanced machinery, technology and management ideas. It is also a true problem solver who knows you well enough to oversee your development.

Zhengchang is with you every step of the way.

Compared with its traditional pellet mill, the SZLH528 optimizes its paddle’s structure and distribution, which can make materials fully mixed while providing a sufficiently long conditioning time, with improved cooking and mixing effects. It adopts a gear-type driving system and achieves a production output 15 percent more efficient than belt conveyors.

The innovative design of the gear box and driving system make the transmission more stable and reliable. Chute structure and automatic discharging system have also been improved. Features such as outer oil lubrication, anti-blockage die holes and pneumatic outer discharge of material ensure the equipment works safely and tightly attaining high levels of hygiene and free of leaks. The main shaft temperature alarm system improves the stability of the main drive.

The gears use top quality steel, giving them a life of more than 30,000 hours.  The SPHS218F produces a variety of high-grade extruded aquaculture feeds, pet foods and sinking fish feed. It is widely used in the following areas: extruding of bullfrog feed, weever feed, shrimp feed and crab feed. It uses a high-precision inverter, feeds more evenly than regular feeders, has high capacity, better stability and easy access.
 
Employing a user-friendly design for steam and water injection, it can detect flow on-line and add liquid accordingly. The special design of mixing shaft and blade effectively improves maturity level and mixing evenness. It can add up to 30 percent water and steam which can be evenly mixed. High hardness, wear-resistant alloy screws and bushing greatly improve the service life of the parts subjected to the greatest wear. 
  As a professional supplier of pellet mills and a machine manufacturer, we try to supply our customers with the most up-to-date machines and most effective and careful after-sale services.

http://www.easonline.org/39-uncategorised/346-aquaculture-europe-2016
Aquaculture Europe 2016 will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) from September 20-23. AE2016 is organised by the European Aquaculture Society with the cooperation and support of Marine Scotland, part of the Scottish Government, and The Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland. The event is Gold Sponsored by Biomar.

The event theme 'Food for thought' means something to think about, something to be seriously considered and something that provides mental stimulation and nourishment.
    

http://www.easonline.org/39-uncategorised/346-aquaculture-europe-2016
Aquaculture in Europe has plateaued resulting in overall output remaining more or less constant in volume since 2000. AE2016 will present the latest science to support further development, and industry panels will discuss key opportunities. It will also identify areas to encourage further sustainable growth in aquaculture. The morning plenary sessions will address different aspects of the event theme in a novel way.
   

Parallel sessions
AE2016 has something for everyone, with a broad proposed list of parallel sessions:

  • New advances in trout farming
  • Diversification in aquaculture production
  • Diversify: exploring the biological and socio-economic potential of new/emerging candidate fish species for expansion of the european aquaculture industry
  • Cleaner fish: biology, production and management
  • Shellfish production and diversification
  • Mariculture and conservation of marine invertebrates and corals•    macro and micro algae production
  • Laboratory models (eg zebrafish and others)
  • Nutrition: new sources of protein
  • Nutrition: new sources of omega 3 fatty acids
  • Nutrition: nutritional requirements in marine organisms
  • Production of copepods as live feeds
  • Arriana: advanced research initiatives for nutrition & aquaculture

Over 200 booths will be showing the latest in aquaculture supplies, programs and equipment. Nearly 3 000 attendees will take part in the Program which features 14 concurrent sessions over 4 days including 87 sessions on nearly all aspects of aquaculture.  In addition, there will be over 200 posters displayed.

The plenary - titled 'The future of aquaculture and its role in the global food system' - will be given by James Anderson.

James L Anderson is director of the new Institute for Sustainable Food Systems and professor of Food and Resource Economics at the University of Florida.  
Prior to joining UF, he was the advisor for Oceans, Fisheries and Aquaculture and leader of the Global Program on Fisheries and Aquaculture (PROFISH) at The World Bank. 

Prof Anderson joined The World Bank in 2010 after chairing the Department of Environmental & Natural Resource Economics at the University of Rhode Island.

His research has focused on natural resource management, fisheries and aquaculture economics, markets and international trade.

Recent work has been directed toward the role of seafood in food security, constraints to aquaculture development, and evaluating how aquaculture is changing global natural resource use in both developed and developing nations.  He received his PhD from the University of California, Davis.
