June 12, 2019, Cologne Germany




Did you know?

  • More tons of seafood are farmed than beef? 
  • More seafood is farmed than caught? 
  • Aquafeed production is expanding at rates far beyond any other feed sector? 
  • Aquaculture continues to lead the growth in animal production?
  • Can you afford to be left behind?
The continuing growth of aquaculture is no secret, but the technical and scientific know-how is far from simple. Consider the physical and nutritional demands of feed for differing aquatic environments, feeding habits, and sizes of the hugely diverse range of aquatic species farmed today  and the complexity of producing aquafeeds becomes clear. 

On top of this, the industry is seeking sustainable protein alternatives, cheaper carb sources and new functional ingredients, so we see algal products, insects, co-products from biofuel production and other novel ingredients becoming available. They hold the promise of helping the aquafeed manufacturer be environmentally responsibility, and achieve production efficiency and profitability – but do we know their processing and formulation implications?

Brought to you by the industry’s  knowledge communicator,, the Aquafeed Horizons Conferences arm delegates with the latest advances in our industry to meet head on the challenges facing this sector.
