For 20 years, Nutreco and Skretting have hosted AquaVision. This multi-stakeholder platform brings together board-level executives, influential public officials and key members of the NGO community to discuss issues facing the feed-to-food value chain now and in the future.
The 11th edition of AquaVision was attended by more than 375 delegates from 35 countries. The theme was 'Meeting tomorrow today' with speakers covering a wide variety of topics including sea lice, fishmeal, human nutrition and population growth. The global megatrend of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) was highlighted by Nutreco's CEO Knut Nesse, as one of the most pressing issues facing the aquaculture industry, with calls for industry to work together to remedy the situation.
Keynote speaker Lord Sebastian Coe urged the industry to increase awareness among young people in order to achieve its goal of feeding a growing population.
"The message needs to be clear, explain what you're doing and why; explain what you can achieve; pose a challenge and place yourself as the solution," he advised delegates.
