Subject: Conference Plenary Sessions


Conference Plenary Sessions

“Is substitution compromising our omega 3 (DHA) position?” -
Professor Michael A Crawford, PhD, FRSB, FRCPath, Imperial College,
London. As we look to replace more and more fish meal and fish oil (for
sustainability requirements) and replace them with terrestrial plants, the DHA
content of farmed fish had also declined. Furthermore, arable land use has
reached its limit and in many places the available area is in decline. Meeting the
nutritional needs for population growth will require prioritising arable land for
high yielding crops for human consumption and not to feed fish, hence the
development of marine agriculture is a must.

“Large scale RTD facility to take tuna farming forward” -
Fernando de la Gándara, Researcher at the IEO (Spanish Institute of
Oceanography) and Director of the Murcia Oceanographic Center. The Atlantic
Bluefin tuna is an emblematic species that has fed Mediterranean human
populations for centuries. Over the last two decades, its wild stocks have been
severely overfished, with high quota limits leading to consequent reduction of
the production. In order to satisfy high market demand, it is essential to
increase bluefin tuna production coming from sustainable aquaculture where
the whole biological life cycle is managed. The Spanish Institute of
Oceanography (IEO) has recently built a land-based large-scale facility (ICRA)
for the control of the reproduction of this species, capable of hosting big size
breeders. This facility is near the already existing IEO Aquaculture facility in
Mazzaron, (Murcia, SE Spain), devoted to the research on Atlantic Bluefin tuna
larval rearing and juvenile production.

“Gene editing. A game changer for aquaculture?” -
Anna Wargelius, Institute of Marine Research, Bergen. Gene editing has been
hailed as a ‘major breakthrough’ in human medicine, with its ‘pros and cons’
widely published in scientific and general press. But what are the uses of gene
editing in plant science and how have these benefited production of food crops?
What is the potential for aquaculture and what are the main lines of work that
are being researched at present? The term ‘biotechnology’ is often intrinsically
linked to ‘ethics’ and this “duo” plenary will also present the ethical
considerations that we must consider as we assess if and how best to adopt
this as a potential game-changer for aquaculture.
