The Food of the Future: Visions for Aquaculture Presented at Alltech’s Upcoming Symposium
Aquatic proteins are shaping up to become a major source to feed a growing population. Alltech’s 26th International Animal Health and Nutrition Symposium will look at this potential role, and also provide research and analysis of recent nutritional breakthroughs, and what they mean for aquaculture. Entitled ‘Bounce Back 2010: A Time for People, Profits and Planet’, Alltech’s 26th International Animal Health and Nutrition Symposium will take place at the Lexington Convention Center in Kentucky, USA from May 16-19, 2010. The Symposium will explore boosting profits and working towards the sustainability of the environment in which aquaculture operates.
Sel-Plex® from Alltech based on a specific strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-3060 has shown to increase the efficiency of aquaculture. Water recirculation is becoming a method that is utilized more and more within the industry. Accurate knowledge of these and other discoveries, and how they may be applied, is essential for the future of the aquaculture industry, and the main focus for the Symposium. Attendees will have the opportunity to liaise with other industry professionals and experts to discuss these issues during a number of informative, aquaculture-specific seminars, exploring the following topics:
• Feed quality control in a global economy – A potential Achilles heel for the aquaculture industry?
• From yeast cell-wall to Artemia to Lobster: Live feed enrichment
• Aquaculture’s answer to chicken - Tilapia, food of the future?
• Novel ingredients for fish – Can enzymes unlock the nutritional possibilities?
• Enhancing Rotifer nutritional value to improve cod larva survival
• Nutritional strategies to increase egg production of Tilapia broodstocks in Brazil
• Unique species with unique challenges – Nutritional strategies for rock lobster
• Fish never get over a good or a bad start – The Nile Tilapia case study
• Nutritional breakthrough – Chromium: An often forgotten mineral. How it can improve aquaculture
• From algae to protozoa to Artemia. Live feed enrichments for marine larvae
• Recirculation technology: A sustainable aqua system
• Raising Barramundi (Australian sea bass) in a recirculation system
There will also be a number of expert speakers including: C. Daniels, National Lobster Hatchery, Cornwall, UK; K. Fitzsimmons, The University of Arizona, Arizona, USA; K. Filer, Alltech, Kentucky, USA; S. Penglase, National Institute of Nutrition & Seafood Research, Bergen, Norway; R. Neukirchner, Piscicultura Aquabel Ltda, Parana, Brazil; R.
