Algae for Aquafeeds Webinar

The latest in algae for aquafeeds will be discussed July 22 on a Zoom webinar hosted by the European Algae Biomass Association.

Looking to be more informed about the latest in algae for aquafeeds? The European Algae Biomass Association will be hosting a technical webinar on the subject on July 22nd.

The Zoom webinar will present the current status of this burgeoning application in algae. Alongside the well-established use of microalgae as part of the live feeds chain in aquaculture hatcheries, there is currently a drive to exploit microalgae in formulated aquatic feeds.

There are several challenges to achieve the forecasted sustainable growth of the aquaculture sector. Namely, the urgent need for novel protein and n-3 HUFA sources. Moreover, the aquafeed feed industry is constantly seeking innovative nutritional ingredients that could add value to their traditional feeds during sensitive periods of the production cycle or specific situations resulting from farming practices.

Although still emerging as an industry, algae biomasses show a great potential in the aquafeed sector and there are many dynamic subjects of discussion necessary to explore. Some of those topics to be addressed at the webinar will include: 

  • The potential of microalgae and seaweeds in aquafeeds
    Luisa Valente — CIIMAR/ICBAS, University of Porto, Portugal
  • Use of Veramaris oil for healthier and more sustainable aquaculture
    Ester Santigosa — DSM Nutritional Products, France
  • Exploring the functional components of microalgae for aquafeeds
    Kiron Viswanath — Nord University, Norway
  • Positioning algae products as ingredients in commercial aquafeeds
    Tiago Aires — AQUASOJA, Portugal
  • The Hidden huge scale of microalgae production in aquaculture
    Amir Neori — School of Marine Sciences, University of Haifa, Israel and The Interuniversity Institute for Marine Sciences in Eilat, Israel
