        (Session in English)

        The session will be the opportunity to highlight and discuss different actions and projects led at regional, national and European levels regarding domestication of current or new species, of vegetal and animal origin. Several sessions will be organised regarding the selection of the species to be produced regarding knowhow, technologies and processes, economic and management issues,  markets, territorial specificities…, in monospecific and/or co-cultured schemes, and Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture. An overview of existing onshore and offshore activities will be also of interest, and the opportunity of new activities linked to marine energies, platforms. Feeding represents a big challenge for the different productions: new sources of proteins, lipids from algae, insects, etc.; natural medication; animal well-being, etc. The participation of European and international experts will enable nice and constructive exchanges regarding experimentations in other territories.



        Access to territories, benchmark : Access to sea : which potentialities on-shore, off-shore, on the coastal line ? case study on existing sites and new opportunities

        How spatial planning can foster the development of aquaculture and marine biotechnologies?

        These activities are targeted in Europe as fields to support. However it remains barriers that hamper their development. Spatial planning can help to overcome some difficulties.

        In order to tackle this issue, Investir en Finistère (non profit organization in economic development) and its partners (local authorities, research centers and professional federations) is carrying out the project “Sea Access for production activities especially aquacultures and biosciences activities”.

        This project aims to support these activities by editing a cartography for their implementation in Finistère/Brittany and will permit to improve the spatial planification in coastal areas.

        New source of protein for feedind in aquaculture

        Novel and sustainable ingredients: Invertebrates/insects as fishmeal replacer

        Aquaculture is rapidly growing, and sustainability is an issue. Insects have the potential to replace fishmeal in fish diets. Insects/invertebrates have good nutritional properties, this goes beyond the protein concept.

        The production of insects is in a rapid development to professional production. The nutritional value is good and differs for each specie. However, the question is valid how can they enter the market, while the insects are not yet available in bulk? Where to apply insects? What is the state-of-the-art in research? The roadmap to market insect confirms feasibility, addresses risks and a strategy to strengthen a sustainable aquaculture sector.

        Environment and Life Cycle

        Developing breeding programs to enhance the sustainability of fish farming (balance productivity and environmental sustainability)

        Selective breeding generates permanent and cumulative changes in animal traits (performances), directed towards specific objectives. Here, we investigated how selective breeding could be used to enhance the sustainability of fish farming. To do so, we combined a bioeconomic model and a life cycle assessment to identify which traits should be improved in order to reduce environmental impacts and increase farm incomes at the same time. We showed that selecting breeding would be a powerful tool to enhance the sustainability of fish farming by improving key traits, such as feed conversion ratio.



        Aquaculture and digitalisation (IoT and big-data)

        DUPONT Charlotte, Biologist and Data Scientist,  Biocéanor & EasyGlobalMarket

        While aquaculture and IoT have exponentially grown in the world in the last years, the combination of both domains still remains at its early stage. Although water monitoring is at the center of the aquaculture activity, its complexity can often push fish farmers to neglect it. We believe that developing user-friendly IoT tools for fish farming will lead to a new era of connected, responsible and efficient aquaculture. IoT for aquaculture needs to be smart, affordable, easy to deploy, reliable and highly efficient. Artificial Intelligence processing key data given by IoT can also provide new services addressing new challenges facing aquaculture (e.g be efficient but green). We are involved in several European research projects that build the foundation of a new aquaculture 4.0.
