Fish farmers, European Commission, NOAA, NGOs, supply chain innovators, feed companies, research organisations, technology providers, insurance experts and architects will all feature on the programme - make sure you book your place to learn the latest about high energy and open ocean aquaculture.

With the ongoing need for growth in aquaculture to feed the human population, the 6th Offshore Mariculture Conference will help fish farmers and producers to grow their business, whether it be through moving from coastal to offshore/high energy sites or simply by adding value through intelligent processing and responsible, sustainable aquaculture. Knowledge sharing between regions, unexplained mortality, supply chain innovations and alternative business opportunities that can operate alongside farming, together with a round-up of some of the current research projects that will assist fish farmers to expand and improve their businesses, will all feature.
