The interviews are part of a new series filmed by The Fish Site’s team at DSM-Firmenich’s recent Global Aqua Days event in Vienna.
In the series a range of aquaculture experts – as well as some analysts from outside the industry – discuss some of the most pressing issues facing the aquaculture industry and the innovative ways of tackling these issues.
The series of interviews gives a broad range of perspectives – from shrimp farmers looking to improve their production skills; to sectoral trends from leading industry analysts; to the scientists who are working to improve the nutrition, health and welfare of fish and shrimp.
In the first episode Pamela Nath, director of Ecuador’s Sustainable Shrimp Partnership, discusses what makes her country’s shrimp sector so special and so sustainable, at a time when producers in most other geographies are finding times exceptionally challenging.
In the second, Gorjan Nikolik, senior seafood analyst at Rabobank, explores the key trends in the salmon, shrimp and marine ingredients sectors, offering telling insights into how 2023 has played out, as well as some predictions for what lies in store in the year ahead.
In the coming weeks interviewees include Rizky Darmawan, CEO of Delta Marine Group and scion of one of Indonesia’s most progressive shrimp farming dynasties; Joao Brites, director of growth and innovation at HowGood; and DSM-Firmenich’s president of animal nutrition and health, Ivo Lansbergen.
The following interviews will be with DSM-Firmenich’s Lorran Gabardo, Louise Buttle, Benedict Standen and Eduardo Yamashita. They will respectively be discussing how to combat mycotoxins in aquafeeds, the sustainability of salmon, DSM-Firmenich’s product development, and the role of enzymes in improving the digestibility of novel feed ingredients.
