Nofima will hold the webinar “Smolt production in the future” on October 21, 2020. “This year, we are hosting a webinar due to the COVID-19 pandemic instead of our traditional conference,” said webinar’s scientific coordinator and scientist, Jelena Kolarevic.
Kolarevic and colleagues at Nofima at Sunndalsøra have extensive experience with research on the production of salmon in closed containment systems and have arranged conferences with this topic since 2008 in collaboration with its local partner, SUNS. Nofima is also leading CtrlAQUA, the Center for Research-Based Innovation in Closed-Containment Aquaculture, with intensive research activity at Nofima’s Center for Recirculation in Aquaculture at Sunndalsøra.
This year’s program will include presentations from salmon producers, agencies, researchers and students from Norway and abroad. The webinar is for everyone interested in the production of smolt, post-smolt and grow-out on land and closed containment systems. In 2018, 320 participants from industry, regulators, students, researchers and investors found their way to the conference. The webinar will be available also to English speaking participants.
