Aquaculture Stewardship Council (ASC) in Holland who will be presenting their new metrics for diversifying shrimp farming worldwide

Naturland in Germany who will present their latest data on positioning RAS-produced shrimps within organic foods / bio-foods to vastly improve returns,

  1. Overview of developments of PL production in Europe (Who is building hatcheries!)
  2. Cementing the Industry (5-10 years production in Europe…and now?)
  3. Estimating total European production (Collecting and reporting annual EU data)
  4. Latest Research Projects Joining Industry and Science
  5. Other pressing demands

Please: Contact us if you have other topic suggestions and contact us if you would like to present at the session or if you have any news you would like to share via the Euroshrimp portal or mail us at
We are as always excited to hear from you.
