The basic format of the event will stay the same as ‘normal’ Aquaculture Europe meetings, with morning plenary sessions and then breakout parallel sessions for oral and Eposter presentations. The parallel sessions will be made up of shorter slots for pre-recorded video presentations of the oral presentations and with time allocated to review Eposters and for Q&A
AE2020 ONLINE will also feature an e-Market, where vendors and media partners will have a dedicated place online to present their products, link to their website and have a chat-box to interact with attendees and set up meetings. Two categories of e-Market participation are proposed.
After five years of extensive research and breeding trials, Genomar introduces new disease-resistant strains of tilapia.
After more than five years of R&D and systematic breeding work, GenoMar introduces new disease-resistant products addressing one of the most economically important diseases in Nile tilapia. Repeated laboratory tests and a field trial have demonstrated an increased survivability of approximately 30 percent for the tilapia selected for streptococcosis resistance. For the farmers, tilapia with genetic resistance will lead to a more sustainable and profitable production.

The President and CEO of Seattle Fish Co., Derek Figueroa, is the new Chair of the National Fisheries Institute. Figueroa helms the Denver-based seafood distributor that boasts more than a hundred years in business.
“Seattle Fish has a legacy of using technology and engagement to do more in the seafood space,” said Figueroa.
“In 1918 this company created a cold chain system that used rail cars, sawdust and ice to transport fresh seafood to the landlocked state of Colorado. We were getting customers what they needed. That’s what NFI is doing with the Virtual Global Seafood Market Conference. We can’t meet in person, but the industry needs the data and insight we’ve come to rely on from GSMC. So we’re doing it virtually.”

The average price for the first four weeks of 2021 is EUR 4.2. This is EUR 3.2 lower than the average price in the same period last year.
The salmon market is sloppy. And has been for quite some time. The reason is, as is known, the COVID-19 virus, which has shut down significant parts of the Horeca segment (hotel, restaurant and catering). Thus, the buyer side is dominated by price-conscious supermarket chains.
The market is particularly burdened with big salmon. There is plenty of it due to impeccable growth conditions in the sea in autumn and winter. At the same time, the intercontinental markets, which prefer big fish, have reduced their purchases partly due to lower flight activity.
