EUfishmeal, the association representing the European producers of fishmeal and fish oil, is currently hosting its biennial conference in the Faroes. The conference has brought more than 120 participants ranging from producers and specialists, to marine scientists and manufacturers of industry equipment to Tóshavn.
The conference opened on Wednesday with a field excursion to experience the entire value-chain of Faroese salmon production, from fishmeal to feed production, to hatchery, followed by a visit to sea cages and Bakkafrost, where salmon steaks are prepared for the supermarket shelves.
The conference is covering subjects such as quality parameters of fishmeal and fish oil, the most recent research of fisheries science and management, aquaculture and control regulations as well as showcasing the latest industry equipment used in production.
The conference ends today with EUfishmeal’s AGM.
