The conference was organised by the Finnish Game and Fisheries Research Institute and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry. A separate Workshop on Recirculating Aquaculture Systems, also financed by the NCM and organised by Technical University of Denmark (DTU), was linked to the conference (www.NordicRAS.net). Together, these two consecutive events formed the Aquaculture Forum. The conference brought together 125 participants from thirteen different European countries. There was broad representation from the aquaculture sector in Europe: central and local administrations, research institutes, universities, industry and a range of other organisations.



Profitability – Success in competing in global product markets and innovations

This session considered what effects profitability of fish farming and why Norwegian salmon has been successful in the global seafood market. The profitability of fish farming affects the price of feed and oil, the selling price and the health of fish. Efficient and effective production is no longer enough to ensure a competitive advantage. Today it is important to take control of the whole value chain, and to understand markets and marketing. The licence policy should support fish farming so that long-term partnerships with operators of processors and trade can be concluded.
