Key topics being discussed during the two-day event include use of bacteriophages, engineering for biosecurity, growth plans of the industry in Scotland, vaccination strategies and smoltification. The UK delegation will be headed by Nikos Steiropoulos, Managing Director of Europharma Scotland, who will be bringing some of Scotland's top fish experts along to the seminar. 

Nikos said: "We are very much looking forward to our annual seminar in Lofoten. It is vital to ensure we are all keeping up-to-date with the latest technology that could benefit the aquaculture industry. Europharma's Lofoten Seminar is a fantastic opportunity to get the industry together from all parts of the world - including Scotland, Norway, Chile, Canada, Iceland and New Zealand - to discuss what is happening in aquaculture, including the latest innovations.

"The atmosphere at Lofoten is often more relaxed than other industry events, meaning we can all have open, frank conversations about challenges we are all facing and how we can work together towards solutions that will better the industry as a whole."

Speakers at the event include experts from King Salmon NZ, ACD Pharma, Scottish Aquaculture Innovation Centre, SalMar, Norwegian University of Life Sciences, the Conservation Fund Freshwater Institute, Norseaqua, The Fish Vet Group, Elanco, Nofima, Capemare, Intesal Salmon Chile, Fishguard, Arnalax and Creuna.
