The Offshore Mariculture Conference is an international two-day conference focused on the mariculture fish farming business. The 2016 Conference will take place at the World Trade Centre in Barcelona, Spain from 6-8 April, 2016.
The conference will benefit fish farmers and is a must-attend event for those looking to grow their offshore farming or high energy site business or for those looking towards moving their operations to offshore. Topics to be covered this year include:
- Supply Chain – Farming, Feed, Technology,
- Processing, value added
- Unexplained mortality: improving survival rates and increasing profits
- High Energy sites v. Offshore sites
- Emerging markets and technologies
- Knowledge sharing – farming practices in Northern Europe v Southern Europe
Previous events have been held in Malta, Alicante, Dubrovnik, Izmir and Naples. Over the years the Conference has proven to be an invaluable platform for both networking and bringing together the industry, both European and international, to put forward regulatory change including the Statement of Izmir presented to the UN by the FAO requesting an assessment of the access and operational frameworks for open ocean mariculture in the High Seas. The Conference also provides the opportunity to be updated on the latest innovative products and technologies.
The 2014 conference, held in Naples attracted, 115 delegates who came from over 28 countries and included 26 fish farmers.
We are still currently accepting abstracts on the above list of topics, all interested parties are invited to submit their abstract by 27 November 2015 along with a speaker biography to: firstname.lastname@example.org
