Conference Programme

With depleting wild stocks and increasing global demand, farmed fish is one of the fastest growing food sectors. In the Mediterranean, 1.2 million tonnes of fish are farmed annually, with over 110,000 tonnes in Greece alone, contributing 69% of total fisheries production and 11% of Greek exports.

High Energy Mariculture, the European edition of Offshore Mariculture, will provide an invaluable platform addressing all components involved in a  successful medium to high volume production of marine finfish within the European waters.

Presentations from industry experts will cover the entire supply chain right from site selection and finance, to hatchery, farming, processing, certification and distribution.
