Professor Manuel Barange, director of Fisheries and Aquaculture Division, FAO will give the opening keynote address at the inaugural Blue Food Innovation Summit in London on June 14-15, 2022.
Presenting the keynote address Realising the Full Potential of the Blue Food Economy, Barange will set the scene for two days of collaborative discussion and networking to accelerate technologies in sustainable aquaculture and ocean health.
Talking about the importance of the aquatic foods sector, he shared, “as we move towards a world of 10 billion people, aquatic foods are progressively under the spotlight. Transforming the aquatic foods sector, from expanding aquaculture, improving capture fisheries and developing fish value chains is increasingly crucial to reduce growing poverty and hunger around the world.”
The Blue Food Innovation Summit brings together global technology leaders, startups, investors, retailers and aquaculture producers to build new partnerships accelerating the development of technologies that can protect and restore the ocean ecosystem.
Registration is available to join the summit in person or virtually at bluefoodinnovation.com/register.
