Blue Economy Aquaculture Forum
May 24-26, 2023, Grand Hyatt Hotel Abu Dhabi
Blue Economy Aquaculture Forum is an event co-sponsored by SAN Group and Sterner Group.
Blue Economy is the "sustainable use of ocean resources for economic growth, improved livelihoods, and jobs while preserving the health of ocean ecosystem."
It is "an emerging concept which encourages better stewardship of our ocean or 'blue' resources."
(Commonwealth of Nations)
SAN Group and Sterner AS see it as their joint responsibility to drive sustainable solutions in fish farming. The ecological footprint of global food production for eight billion people on this earth is larger than ever. The world population is growing, but the resources of our planet are limited.
For this reason, it is necessary to produce sustainable fish.
RAS (recirculating aquaculture systems) are considered one of the key forward-looking solutions that contribute to a more sustainable tomorrow.
The aim of Blue Economy Aquaculture Forum 2023 is to discuss solutions to one of the most important future problems together with experts from all over the world.
‘’Science without the right application loses much of its potential. Innovation creates the bridge between science and application and makes it possible to use the potential to create a sustainable and better future."
‘’The world challenges we see in food production must be taken seriously. We need more sustainable solutions to provide both food, places to work and value to local communities."
Experienced speakers from all over the world talk about the most demanding topics in the field of Blue Economy.
Which challenges do we face? In an aquacultural perspective - what are the solutions for that?
And how can we ensure profitability for the environment, society and investors?
