AquaVision - a platform for the aquaculture industry

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 12th edition of AquaVision was attended by more than 450 delegates from 45 countries. Led by former Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon and Her Royal Highness Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, a total 26 speakers inspired and motivated participants to discuss about the long-term vision of the aquaculture industry based on the Blue Revolution, a concept coined by The Economist magazine in 2003. In addition to salmon, this year’s conference also provided a wider overview on the development and opportunities for species such as shrimp and tilapia in growing areas such as Africa and Asia.
