AquaFarm, the international exhibition-conference event dedicated to aquaculture and sustainable fishing industry, takes place on 14 & 15 February at the Pordenone Fiere exhibition centre in Pordenone, Italy.

As previously, the AquaFarm trade show combines the exhibition spaces with an extensive programme of conferences and workshops dedicated to the most up to date issues in the sector.

Recognising the need for continuous innovation, particularly in production processes, the session dedicated to technological innovation in farming will talk about new technologies capable of optimizing the entire supply chain. Experts will also discuss how artificial intelligence and data analysis play a fundamental role in improving efficiency and decision-making in the aquaculture sector.

Animal feed has a significant impact on the aquaculture supply chain, both economically and in terms of environmental footprint. Regulation of fishing waste for the use of products as a basis for fish feed, new ingredients such as blue crab and insects, microalgae and waste from agricultural production: at AquaFarm researchers and innovators will present projects that have the important aim of making the sector more sustainable through the optimization and improvement of primary resources and ingredients.

In the conference dedicated to technologies and trends in research, researchers and experts from all over the world will present the latest news relating to animal welfare throughout the entire breeding cycle, the use of fish skin in medical therapies, new methods for selection and much more.
