Aquaculture Europe 2019

Berlin, Germany, 7-10 October 2019

GROWING from WATER is the theme for this year’s Aquaculture Europe (AE2019) conference in Germany’s capital city. The aquaculture sector nourishes and stimulates life in water in all its forms, and thereby holds the potential to overcome many of the challenges our society faces. The future of healthy and sustainably produced food and commodities lies in the diversity of aquaculture, from single-cell microalgae in bioreactors to fish teeming in sea pens or freshwater ponds. Truly unlocking this potential requires innovative ways to support the aquaculture economy, generation of new business models and support of start-ups. Read more about this event here.

In the framework of this event PerformFISH is organising a half-day Industry Forum. This event will highlight the main results obtained within the project and how they address the needs of Seabass and Seabream aquaculture in the Mediterranean.
