Feed alternatives on agenda at ACIG

Potential alternatives to fishmeal and fish oil will be the main focus of the Aquaculture Common Issues Group's next meeting.

Topics on the agenda include: policy development; research and funding opportunities including the UK Aquaculture Initiative; the progress of the Seafood Industry Expert Working Group; Brixham Fisheries and Aquaculture Centre feasibility study; aquaculture in tidal lagoons; fishmeal/fish oil and alternatives; the impact of El Nino on fish oil supply; and algae – the original source of marine omega-3s.

The group, facilitated by Seafish, is comprised of culturists, producer associations, food and fish feed processors, retailers, environmental NGOs, Crown Estates, government departments and regional development organisations, who are concerned with, or affected by, the many issues facing the UK finfish and shellfish aquaculture industry.

It provides a forum for discussing ethical, environmental and economic challenges to the aquaculture industry, during which the aim is to reach a consensus position on these issues, or as high a level of agreement as possible, particularly with regard to responsible and sustainable seafood cultivation.

Two meeting are held each year, with the next taking place on 5 April at Friends House, 173-177 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BJ. To register email karen.green@seafish.co.uk
