Organisers have some 500 visitor packs ready and expect day two to be more crowded if this exceptional weather continues. Already by midday today the organiser say approximately 300 visitors had collected their registration badges. And this year's event has attracted over 400 exhibitors.
"Aquaculture UK exhibitors are particularly interested in our magazine when it comes to feeding equipment," says Darren Parris, IAF's international marketing manager who visits the event for the first time.
"Most of the exhibitors with feeding equipment are talking about new developments. For example Arvotec's new precise pipe fish feed system and the importance of recirculation and its impact on feed and on water quality are features too."
The Aquaculturists will report on the conference running alongside the exhibition later.
