‘Netting the right offshore technology’ and ‘Zoning, licensing and security for offshore operations’, are just two of the topics on offer giving attendees detailed insight into moving from nearshore to offshore, production chain and how to choose the right investments, and an unprecedented insight into the industry.

Day two of the conference will focus on efficiency, covering everything from marketing of the product, to identifying and targeting species for investment. The conference will also look at how to secure financial support for offshore projects and joint venture approaches, including investment case studies with real life examples for delegates.

Delegates from Norway, Vietnam, The Philippines, Jamaica, Turkey and Mexico will be in attendance, providing international networking opportunities and the chance for local stakeholders interested in moving to cage quality finfish production to meet with international experts, equipment suppliers and investors. The final day of the conference will offer delegates a technical visit to an established functioning fish farm and hatchery, followed by a question and answer session with the farm managers.
