Aquaculture is driven by innovation to meet one of the three main business goals, productivity, sustainability and profitability.
Intensification requires upscaling production systems and developing new solutions for producing more to supply a growing market with healthy products. This requires new ideas, technologies and entrepreneurs to put them into place.
EAS recognises the importance of innovation and as such wants to promote and support start-ups and emerging business models in the aquaculture sector. By matching ideas to potential investors and those that can push the development of these companies, we may help to facilitate growth in the sector, with better technology and new products.
Our Aquaculture Europe events – integrating a multi-disciplinary scientific conference with an international trade event and forums for business - are an ideal platform to do this and we have therefore created the Aquaculture Europe Innovation Forum.
The huge amount of knowledge presented each year at Aquaculture Europe is a great and unique resource from which innovation can be derived. The Forum will allow us to showcase aquaculture innovation.
