A meeting place for producers and suppliers
European nations such as Norway, Denmark and Scotland have a long history with fish farming, and thus several companies who specialize in developing equipment for the aqua culture industry, whether it be vessels, farming methods or other solutions that can be applied to seaweed production.
The symposium will highlight ongoing R&D projects, technological development and opportunities for innovation within the global seaweed production.
Jorunn Skjermo at SINTEF Ocean will be the host of the Symposium.
