Welcome to Aqua Vision 16-18 June 2014

AquaVision is the biennial international aquaculture and food business conference organized to provide a platform and network for discussion at a strategic level on current and future concerns from consumption and marketing back to farming, fish processing and feeding.

Since its beginning in 1996 AquaVision has developed as a leading meeting place for decision makers in modern aquaculture worldwide.

A fully booked conference in 2012, with more than 450 stakeholders from 35 countries, showed the importance of AquaVision as a meeting place. Skretting and Nutreco look forward to welcoming you to Stavanger 16–18 June 2014 at this 10th World Aquaculture Business Conference.

The world is not what it used to be. Perhaps more accurately, as French writer and philosopher Paul Valéry (1871-1945) suggested, “The trouble with our times is that the future is not what it used to be.” Volatility prevails, making it increasingly difficult to predict where market and business trends are headed. The challenge for any business is to be competitive and that is far more difficult when the rules of the game and the shape of the pitch keep changing.

In the aquaculture industry, there have traditionally been two main contributors to success; firstly, innovation that reduces costs and improves competitiveness; and secondly, market development investments that either increase demand by expanding the market geographically or that increase the number of products available to producers.

“Sir Bob Geldof is one of the world’s highest ranked and most authoritative corporate speakers and I am therefore delighted he will be one of our main speakers at AquaVision 2014. His presentations are highly provocative, uplifting and inspiring. Sir Bob motivates audiences through his own personal experiences, the lessons learned from Live Aid as well as from building successful commercial businesses. At the conference we will explore ways in which aquaculture can contribute sustainably to feeding the planet’s growing population,” says Viggo Halseth, COO of Nutreco Aquaculture.

Aquaculture has a strong potential to contribute to reducing hunger in the world said Kofi Annan when addressing delegates at AquaVision 2012 in Stavanger, Norway.

Kofi Annan left a deep impression on world aquaculture leaders when spoke this morning on how aquaculture can contribute to feeding nine billion people by 2050. He was addressing the fully-subscribed global aquaculture business conference AquaVision 2012 in Stavanger, Norway.

Food production must increase substantially if the predicted population of 2050 is to be fed adequately. New successful innovations are a key for developing the aquaculture industry says Alex Obach, Head of R&D Skretting Group.

Food production must increase substantially if the predicted population of 2050 is to be fed adequately. That alone is a challenge. Doing it sustainably and with minimal impact on biodiversity is another, says Knut Nesse, head of  Skretting Group and member of Nutreco Executive Board.

Kofi Annan, for ten years Secretary-General of the United Nations, will be the main speaker at AquaVision 2012, 11–13 June in Stavanger, Norway. Mr Annan will directly address the food security challenges of the coming decades. The conference will explore ways in which aquaculture can contribute sustainably to feeding the growing world population. Next aquavision will be arranged in stavanger, Norway in 2012. Since its beginning in 1996 Aquavision has developed as a leading meeting place for decision makers in modern aquaculture worldwide.
