Spring Genetics at FENACAM 2018

Recognised as one of the most important aquaculture events in Brazil was held on 13th – 16th November in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte

Teams from our Genetics and Advanced Nutrition divisions were present, representing Spring Genetics and INVE.

The trade show has a strong focus on shrimp, but it counted with a fair share of representation from the tilapia industry. Our Spring Genetics team had the chance to share opinions and views with key players and stakeholders.

There were 177 stands, 39 lectures and hundreds of technical and scientific presentations across the three-day event. Key topics included progress and updates of aquaculture and the use of technology in the various regions of Brazil as well as in the main Latin American and Asian countries.

From Benchmark Genetics, Sergio Vela, Scientific Advisor at Akvaforsk Genetics presented advances on genetics for tilapia, with focus on resistance to streptococcus agalactiae and streptococcus iniae.

The trade show provided a great opportunity to exchange knowledge and experiences and interact with stakeholders from many different areas of the aquaculture industry – hatcheries, feedmills, farms and equipment manufacturers through to professors, students and research institutes.
