The 15th edition of AquaVision will convene global aquaculture leaders to discuss the future of blue food and its role in feeding a growing global population. The conference will take place in Stavanger, Norway from June 10-12, 2024.

AquaVision is a biennial aquaculture business conference focused on meaningful discussions surrounding the challenges and opportunities within the sector and has been organized by Skretting since 1996.

The three central themes of AquaVision 2024 are Acting towards a sustainable future; Dealing with market disruptions in an ever-changing world; and Beyond tomorrow.

“We are very excited to share this year’s central themes. The number of people suffering from acute food insecurity in the world grew 1.5 times between 2019 and 2022 and multiple external factors pushed food prices to all-time highs. It is now more important than ever to secure access to high-quality protein in a sustainable, future-proof manner. Innovations such as artificial intelligence and other cutting-edge technologies have the potential to accelerate transformative change and support this ambition. I am looking forward to discussing this and more during AquaVision 2024,” said Therese Log Bergjord, CEO of Skretting.

Internationally renowned speakers

AquaVision is recognized for featuring a lineup of inspiring and internationally renowned speakers. Distinguished figures such as Joseph Stiglitz, Kofi Annan, Sir Bob Geldof, Lord Sebastian Coe, and Ban Ki-moon have previously shared their unique insights with the industry as keynote speakers.

This year’s keynote speaker will be Paul Krugman. A distinguished scholar and professor of Economics at the Graduate Center, City University of New York, Krugman is one of the world's most renowned economists. In 2008, Krugman won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for his contributions to new trade theory and new economic geography. In addition to the Nobel Prize, Krugman's work in economics has earned him widespread recognition from the economic press and numerous prestigious awards.

The event will be moderated by Solveig van Ness, CEO and founder of Marine Prospects. She will be joined by hosts Therese Log Bergjord, CEO of Skretting, and Fulco van Lede, CEO of Nutreco.
