Attendees of the conference in Corfu will be able to visit Corfu Sea Farm on Friday 19th October, which will enhance their conference learning and provide a further location for network building.

Producers of European Sea Bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) and Gilt Head Sea Bream (Sparus aurata), the farm is located off the north-eastern coast of Corfu, in deep open water and fairly strong currents. Operating since 1992, the company has taken the strategic decision to maintain its yearly sales at moderate volumes (currently 540 tons) and intensively focus on creating value by offering superior quality.

The company is actively seeking to expand its certification portfolio in the fields of sustainable aquaculture and consumer protection. The farm currently holds EN ISO 22000:2005 and 9001:2008 certifications and has been recognised as a member of the Friend of the Sea family.

Yannis Papadopoulos, Partner at Corfu Sea Farm, who will also present during the conference says “The technical visit is a great chance to share our fish farming knowledge and get feedback on best practices from the industry experts attending HEM in Corfu”.

Delegates attending will be able to view the farm and packaging operations of Corfu Sea Farm. The farms selection for the HEM technical visit will add value to the High Energy Mariculture experience reinforcing the conference learning and highlighting a high quality products and certifications.
