Alongside the exhibition Aquaculture UK hosts a series of presentations to provide visitors with professional updates from the industry. The Conference tent will be next to the main marquee. Use the schedule below and the exhibition app to plan your visit.
- Our environmental commitments going forward, aiming to be world-leading
- The importance of aquaculture in feeding the world
- The good environmental story aquaculture has to tell, worldwide – low carbon footprint etc.
- The salmon sector as good neighbours – Year of Coasts and Waters.
Join us for presentations with opportunities for questions and answers followed by networking and a ‘Portuguese breakfast’.
FEEDNETICS TM: Evaluating feeds and feeding strategies
Using FEEDNETICS TM virtual environment will allow you to evaluate the impact of different feeds and feeding strategies on key performance indicators of a fish farm. This software is based on a state-of-the-art mathematical model that predicts the effects of nutritional and environmental factors on fish growth, feed conversion, feeding costs, body composition and waste load, thus allowing to virtually pre-screen the most interesting solutions before farm implementation.
HATCHERY FEEDS: Focus on tailored nutrition for fish larvae species
Hatchery Feeds comprises a range of R&D based nutritional solutions specifically designed for flatfish larvae (WINFlat), fast growing fish larvae (WINFast) and broodstock fish (BROODFeed). At larval stages, different fish species require a tailored nutritional approach to unlock the biological potential at later stages in the lifecycle. Get to know different nutritional solutions for fish species including sole, halibut, yellowtail, seabass, seabream, meagre, wrasse and lumpfish.
