AquaFarm Conference in Fiere Pordenone
Neil Auchterlonie attended the AquaFarm Conference in Fiere Pordenone, Italy last week, link here: http://www.aquafarm.show/?lang=en. Neil was invited to speak during the first session on the second day, Friday 16th February, which was a session devoted to aquafeeds. IFFO members were also present and the session included presentations by Dr Niels Alsted of Biomar, on behalf of FEFAC, and Umberto Luzzana of Skretting. Neil’s presentation (here) made the case for a continuing importance of fishmeal and fish oil in aquafeeds, and it was pleasing to see alignment in the key messages with the presentations from Niels and Umberto. Some more research-oriented presentations followed covering seaweed, mealworms and functional feed additives. It was great to receive the invitation from the conference organisers – another opportunity to ensure communication of many of our key messages.
