AquaVision 2010 is open for business
Demand for food from an expanding world population is good news for the aquaculture industry. Growth in production may be outpacing the other food sectors but there are important issues and challenges for aquaculture as it gears up to meet this demand, reports www.megafishnet.com with reference to Skretting.
AquaVision 2010 is an opportunity to meet industry leaders and other stakeholders, from NGOs and legislators to processors and retailers, and debate the way ahead.
AquaVision 2010 will focus on ways to Enable Sustainable Growth, What Drives Perception and Driving Innovation in three half-day sessions packed with fact and opinion. Leading speakers include Albert Tacon on alternative feed raw materials, Andrew Jackson of IFFO on responsible sourcing of marine raw materials, Phillip Smith on the new Aquaculture Stewardship Council and Karl Rose, the chief strategist at Shell, on scenario planning for sustainable growth, and that is just in the first session.
Other sessions feature speakers such as Dr Jingjie Chu, an expert on aquaculture perception at the World Bank Group, and Knut Molaug, CEO of the AKVA Group, talking on new technologies for aquaculture.
When: 7-9 June 2010
Where: Stavanger, Norway
