Integrating Innovative Approaches for Competitive and Sustainable Performance across the Mediterranean Aquaculture Value Chain

PerformFISH and MedAID celebrate successful Industry Forum at Aquaculture Europe 2019

More than 80 aquaculture industry and research representatives participated in the Industry Forum "Sustainable Solutions to Address Sea Bass and Sea Bream farming in the Mediterranean", jointly organised by the PerformFISH and MedAID projects.

The aim of the forum was to communicate the main results obtained within both projects to aquaculture experts. The event was held at the Aquaculture Europe conference in Berlin, one of the key events in the calendar for the industry.

PerformFISH partners presented tangible solutions to solve the specific challenges in selective breeding for disease resistance, health and welfare, feeding management, and key indicators to measure performance in Mediterranean farms. MedAID then provided an overview on their latest findings regarding social acceptability and the economics related to production and markets of Mediterranean aquaculture products.

The event ended with an open discussion with the participants to determine how these solutions can be implemented at farm level and the next steps to be carried by the projects in the coming years.

Aquaculture Europe 2019 was held in Berlin, Germany, on the 8th October 2019. To learn more about the event, click here.
