Seafeeds - Sustainable, Environmental Aquaculture Feeds

The Seafeeds workshop brought together a wide range of expert opinion from all spectrums of the aquaculture debate to advance the understanding of the needs and opportunities for sustainable aquaculture feeds. Representatives from the aquaculture, fisheries and feed industries, food certification, and environmental and research organisations contributed to facilitated discussion, at times splitting off into small single topic working groups. Delegates were charged with specific tasks and areas to debate enabling lively and productive discussion. In this way the major areas of debate were handled in a structured manner. The residential workshop format also enabled long discussions to continue. In spite of the range of viewpoints represented, a significant level of agreement was achieved, enabling a summary of current thinking and research on future sustainable fish feeds and consensus on sustainability criteria and other key areas of debate.
