17/06/14: AquaVision 2014 officially opened by Knut Nesse

AquaVision 2014, the 10th edition of the world business conference on aquaculture, was officially opened today in Stavanger, Norway, by Nutreco's CEO Knut Nesse. Welcoming more than 400 delegates from 45 countries, including many top decision makers from the aquaculture industry, Nesse said aquaculture is about healthy and sustainable protein production.
"We cannot get more from wild capture fisheries. The solution to seafood production growth needs to come from aquaculture and according to the Financial Times, 2014 will be a milestone year where the per capita consumption of farmed fish will be greater than wild fish consumption," said Nesse.
The theme for AquaVision 2014 is "Meeting tomorrow today" and the two-day programme divides into three parts:
  • Feeding 9 billion people                    
  • The blue revolution
  • Beyond tomorrow
The conference organisers have brought together a broad range of speakers from all continents to provide attendees with invaluable information, insight and opinion. Some of the main topics and liveliest debates will focus on the challenges and opportunities facing the aquaculture industry today and in the future.
