  • Alternative and Emerging Species Workshop

    The main goal of the workshop was to inform aquaculturists of opportunities that may exist in the culture of emerging species or in the alternative use of production products or by-products from aquaculture production. Speakers included aquaculturists, product developers, researchers, service providers and potential project funders.  Attendees were encouraged to participate and share ideas and experiences.

    The proceedings provide a summary of the presentations and discussions.  The workshop explored the opportunities that emerging and alternative species and processes may present to aquaculturists, indicated possible paths forward for new developments and identified challenges that have been or may be faced with their application.
