Who we are
The 2018 European edition of conference ran under a new title ‘High Energy Mariculture Europe’, an international two-day conference focused on the offshore fish farming business, held in Corfu, Greece from 17th to 19th October.
The aquaculture industry in Greece is already an integral part of the economy. 69% of total fisheries production comes from farming, which accounts for 11% of total Greek agricultural exports. With human consumption of fish expected to increase by up to 15% by 2030 (FAO), coupled with depleting wild stocks, these percentages are set to rise in the coming years.
The conference is beneficial to fish farmers looking to grow their offshore fish farming businesses and to those looking to move their businesses to high energy waters.
The programme explored the progress and prospects for offshore aquaculture in both European and international waters and included a technical visit to a fish farm allowing delegates a comprehensive insight in to how offshore fish farms are operating today.
This was a must attend event for anyone looking to benefit from learning about latest legislation, technical advances and investment opportunities which effect the day to day running and profitability of an offshore fish farming business.
