The 2018 European edition of this conference will run under a new title ‘High Energy Mariculture Europe’, an international two-day conference focused on the offshore fish farming business, to be 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. This conference seeks to provide fish farmers with the information they need to to grow their offshore fish farming businesses, as well as how to move their businesses to high energy waters.
The programme will explore the progress and prospects for offshore aquaculture in both European and international waters and includes a technical visit to a fish farm allowing delegates a comprehensive insight in to how offshore fish farms are operating today. This is 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.
