    Thursday the 12th of October in Háteigur, at 16:40 Karen Mist Kristjánsdóttir Aquaculture sludge (uneaten feed and faeces) is a growing side stream in Iceland. It can be challenging to handle, and research is needed to further examine its potential. The first step towards utilization is the collection which now often entails a dewatering process including polymer addition. These polymers can pose a potential challenge and limitation when it comes to utilization potentials, so the question becomes, what to do?

  • Oh! – what a gut feeling!
    Thursday the 12th of October in Gullteigur at 15:45 Ólafur I. Sigurgeirsson, Háskólinn á Hólum The demand for aquaculture feed is continually increasing. Therefore, it is an urgent need to find sustainable and cost-effective raw materials for fish and crustacean diets. Substitution of raw materials of marine origin with other sources, from plants, single cell proteins or insects may not be without compromises and obstacles. This will be discussed form the Atlantic salmon point of view. The transfer from fresh water to seawater require several alterations in many physiological functions and is challenging for the animal. This transition also… Read more: Oh! – what a gut feeling!

  • Offshore farming
    Friday the 13th in Gullteig at 09:30 Kjartan Ólafsson, Iceland Offshore Salmon Offshore salmon farming has been in the discussions lately as an addition to traditional sea pen farming. It could deliver alternative potential with less environmental impact, less problems with parasites and better fish health. Deep sea conditions will provide more stable temperatures and stronger currents, providing better environment for the salmon. And It will give potential for large output and deliver product closer to the final salmon market. However positive factors must be counterbalanced by its high investment cost, much higher than traditional sea pen farming.
