Industry Leaders Convene to Elevate the Aquaculture Industry
Aquaculture sessions will feature concepts on creating new products, taking advantage of innovative technologies, and elevating production, performance and returns.
Is global aquaculture production running at peak efficiency? Can we improve pigmentation through nutrition? Enhance immunity? These are just some of the key discussions to take place during the Aquaculture Nutritional Technologies Session at Alltech’s 21st Annual Feed Industry Symposium in Lexington Kentucky, May 22-25, 2005.
Presentations during the event will feature concepts on creating new products, taking advantage of innovative technologies, and elevating production, performance and returns.
Renowned consultants and academics will look at issues such as:
· Antiviral immunity
· The organic aquaculture movement
· Alternatives to antibiotics
· Nutritional aspects of pigmentation
· Controlling mycotoxins
“Consumer demand for traceability and high-quality nutrition, coupled with the need to maximize feed efficiency and performance mean the aquaculture industry must be willing to break the boundaries of traditional feed methods to remain competitive and cost effective. These are all tough challenges that the Aquaculture Nutritional Technologies Session will be
addressing,” Dan Fegan, Alltech’s Asia-Pacific Regional Technical Manager for Aquaculture
“For 20 years, the goal of the annual Alltech Symposium has been to bring the latest scientific technologies to the animal and aqua feed industries in a practical format. This year’s program is the best one yet,” said Dr.Pearse Lyons, president of Alltech. “We are going to help create new markets with innovative ideas that will elevate the performance not only of our animals, but of our industry.”
David Byrne, former EU Commissioner for Health and Consumer Protection will give the keynote presentation, “Food safety, front and center: the consumer’s ultimate concern. Why traceability, both globally and nationally, must become one of any company’s mandates.” During his tenure as EU Commissioner, Byrne was instrumental in developing policies on food safety, public health, and consumer protection. He was also central in preparing Europe’s response to such crises as BSE, Foot and Mouth, and SARS.
