Workshop: Invertebrates aquaculture at the European Maritime Day, EMD2023, Brest

On 24th May 2023, Colin Hannon, partner from the Atlantic Technology University, ATU, Ireland, will participate in the round table workshop on Invertebrates aquaculture: Towards circular model. It will take place at EMD2023 in Brest Expo – Hall 2 (1st floor) – Room 1.3 from 14.30 to 15.45

The workshop is organized by the Marine & Environmental Science Centre. It focuses on the contribution of marine invertebrates’ aquaculture to meet the Farm to Fork strategy and Mission Restore Ocean and waters. The production of these low trophic species is often driven by increasing demand for high-end seafood, but also creates opportunities to apply circular economy models and to restore wild populations and habitats. In this workshop, the speakers are invited to present the recent research and technologic advances on the aquaculture of emergent and traditional invertebrate species, the application of circular economy concepts to produce feeds, as well as the ecosystem services provided by the aquaculture of these species. These talks will set the basis for the round table dedicated to discussing strategies to transform the knowledge on invertebrates’ aquaculture in profitable operations able to fulfil seafood market while contributing to ecosystems services targets.

Colin Hannon was invited to participate in the roundtable among other speakers. He will represent AquaVitae and Ineval projects talking about knowledge transfer and interaction between research on invertebrate’s aquaculture and the industry, and how  low trophic aquaculture can be promoted among producers.

The workshop will be moderated by Ana Pombo and Sílvia Lourenço, MARE (Polytechnic of Leiria, Portugal).

Looking forward to seeing you at #EMD2023!
