For the 15th time, global leaders from the aquaculture industry will be gathering at AquaVision in Stavanger, Norway, between June 10 and 12 with the award-winning economist Paul Krugman as the keynote speaker. International company Skretting calls on more time to discuss the blue food” of the future and the importance aquaculture will play in ensuring the world’s population has enough food in the future.

“It is a pleasure to share this year’s three main themes. The number of people suffering from acute food insecurity in the world grew 1.5 times between 2019 and 2022, and several external factors pushed food prices to new heights. It is now more important than ever to ensure the world’s population access to high-quality protein in a sustainable and future-oriented way. Innovations such as artificial intelligence and other new technology can increase the pace of change and support this. I look forward to discussing this and more at AquaVision 2024,” said Therese Log Bergjord, CEO of Skretting.

The main themes for AquaVision 2024 will be acting towards a sustainable future, dealing with market disruptions in an ever-changing world and beyond tomorrow.

Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics

Some days ago, Skretting announced proudly its new keynote speaker. As a highly respected academic and economics professor at The Graduate Center, City University of New York, Krugman is one of the world’s most recognized economists at the moment. In 2008, he won the Nobel Memorial Prize in Economics for his contribution to new trade theory and economic geography. In addition to the Nobel Prize, Krugman’s work has earned him wide recognition both in the international economics press and through a number of prestigious awards.

Meanwhile, Solveig van Nes, CEO and founder of Marine Prospects, will be a presenter during AquaVision together with the hosts Log Bergjord and Fulco van Lede, CEO of Nutreco.

AquaVision is known for having a number of inspiring and internationally recognized speakers. In the past, Nobel laureate in economics Joseph Stiglitz, UN leader Kofi Annan, Sir Bob Geldof, Lord Sebastian Coe and UN leader Ban Ki-moon have been keynoting speakers and shared their unique insights with the industry.

Registration opened

From the organization of the aquaculture conference in 2024 recalled that the registration for AquaVision 2024 is already open.

It’s important to remember that AquaVision is a business conference with a focus on discussions around the challenges and opportunities within the aquaculture industry. The conference is organized every two years and was created by Skretting in 1996.

Contribute to meeting the world’s food needs in a sustainable manner

Some days before to the announcement, the members of Skretting declared they believes that providing their customers with digital tools and services to enhance their productivity and simplify their operations is important as developing innovative nutritional solutions. And that is why the company developed Skretting 360+, a complete package of innovative tools and comprehensive services to optimize feeding, farming and health management.

The seeds of Skretting 360+ were in fact sown more than 30 years ago. “In Norway, we have been providing our customers with advice on topics such as farm and feeding management, stocking densities and fish health monitoring for more than 30 years,” said Kristoffer Tveit, Digital Innovation Director at Skretting.

“Growth and feeding models for salmon were developed by our Digital Team many years ago. All of this paved the way for what Skretting 360+ is today” he added.

Skretting 360+ allows users to benchmark the performance of each production cycle, and manage feed and harvest predictions through the collection and analysis of real-time data via their AquaSim app.

The concept was first rolled out in Ecuadorian shrimp farms in 2018, and it was met with great success – in part due to the collaborative efforts of Eruvaka, developers of cloud-based aquaculture pond management solutions, including real-time monitoring and smart feeders.

It wasn’t too challenging to prove to our customers in Ecuador that the digitalization of their shrimp farms could really make a huge difference in parameters such as gram per day and growth cycle.

Skretting’s ambition is to expand the concept’s reach and increase efficiency and productivity for their customers around the globe. Since the successful launch of Skretting 360+ in Ecuador, it has also been rolled out in other locations, including trout farms in Southern Europe, and vannamei shrimp farms in India.
