Unlocking the potential of tilapia aquaculture: innovation, welfare and sustainable development

Despite delivering a low-cost, affordable protein that is critical to food security and global nutrition, tilapia aquaculture receives little attention and investment compared to high value species like salmon.

The sector suffers from under-investment, a low level of technological application, and a paucity of on-the-ground research. This results in preventable production and husbandry problems, combined with reduced yields and profits.

If not addressed this risks jeopardising the sector’s potential as a major source of affordable, high quality protein for human consumption.

This event – which will take place purely in Portuguese – seeks to highlight the latest tilapia research and technology breakthroughs.

It will also bring tilapia producers, researchers, genetics experts, feed formulators, health specialists, entrepreneurs and equipment companies together to improve tilapia welfare, environmental performance, productivity and profitability.
