At the event, salmon producers, equipment suppliers, governmental agencies and researchers will present their latest knowledge on:

  • Production in closed containment systems
  • Industry experiences from post-smolt production in recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) and semi-closed containment systems in sea
  • New technical innovations within RAS technology
  • The health and welfare of post-smolts
  • Management and water quality in RAS

Many presentations will show the latest results from CtrlAQUA – a Centre for Research-Based Innovation (SFI) in closed-containment aquaculture, which was established in 2015 and is hosted by Nofima.

Aquaculture is an increasingly important source of safe, nutritious, and sustainable seafood for people worldwide. Globally, aquaculture production must double by 2030 to keep pace with demand. These increases in demand for aquaculture products, food security considerations, and job creation have generated an increased need for skilled workers.

Discover how you can be part of this rapidly expanding industry.

A Q&A event with members of the CtrlAQUA project will take place directly after the conference and delegates will also be given the chance to visit the Nofima Centre for Recirculation in Aquaculture (NCRA) in Sunndalsøra before the event begins.
