About This Webinar

If current and near future levels of per-capita fish consumption are to be fulfilled, aquaculture production will need to substantially increase so it meets consumer demands for quantity, quality, appearance and price!

Offshore and nearshore aquaculture have gained momentum in recent years, and production of an increasing number of marine fish species is being relocated into the seas. Producers and inventors have been experimenting and trialing various production methods and models, some of which have successfully met the production needs required and some did not make it further. Today there is sufficient scientific and practical knowledge available and ought to be utilized while aiming to venture into any of these production methods. One thing is becoming more evitable, offshore marine pen aquaculture is considered to be one of the main farming methods that will lead us towards meeting the consumer needs provided that important environmental and social concerns are addressed.

This snap virtual forum aims to bring together investors, producers, legislators, community leaders, scientists, and others with a wide range of expertise and interests and create a common platform to discuss this way to produce seafood and how to make it work for everyone concerned. During our the time together, we will take the opportunity to have an short overview and a discussion on where the industry is today, what has been accomplished, what is coming up next and where we can get hold of valuable reference information to help us understand the science and the practicalities of setting up and running a Marine Pen Aqua Farm.
