At the Aquaculture Europe Conference in Edinburgh.
The Salmonview Media Group workshop on the 22 of September will be: Growing larger fish in RAS systems. There is an increasing trend to grow salmon to larger sizes in recirculation systems – although growing market-sized fish is still only done on a very limited basis, more and more companies are looking to release larger post-smolts to sea. This seminar will look at the challenges and opportunities offered by the trend, with insights offered by a range of experts – academic researchers, industry technicians and commercial producers of RAS equipment – from Scotland, Norway and the Americas. Topics due to be discussed include designing and building RAS systems, developments in RAS technology, waste disposal and the possibilities offered by GM fish. The event is organised and chaired by the Salmonview Media Group, whose range of publications include Fish Farming Expert, Norsk Fiskeoppdrett and Salmon Expert and websites consist of www.fishfarmingexpert.comwww.kyst.no and www.salmonexpert.cl
