  • 2. Sustainable aquaculture: the research canvas Husbandry Nutritional Microbial Breeding techniques research managementChallenges for aquaculture industry: – Sustain yields and increase production – Reduce quality variability (production related parameters) – Reduce financial losses through disease

Blue biotechnology at work for People, Planet and Profit Morphological development Environmental Aquatic veterinary monitoring medicineIndustry Society Improved yields Ugent  Sustainability Improved quality  Food security Reduced disease Aquaculture Microbial Nutritional management research Genomics 3
  • 4. Sustainable aquaculture: the way forwardCurrent trends & concerns in society: – Food security (EU imports 63% of its fish consumption) – SustainabilityCurrent trend in the industry: – From empirical farms to knowledge-based industry – Translating Research to Practice: Multifactorial effects, solutions: multifactorial  not easily translated to industry practice – Breeding techniques: still needs larger penetration in the industry
