Confirmed presentations include the cost and impact of sea lice from Audun Iversen, Scientist at NOFIMA; the importance of animal welfare in modern food production and diving into whether we take it seriously enough, from Dag Henning Reksnes, Director, MatPrat; followed by a talk on understanding behaviour as the next step to ensure the welfare of farmed fish by Dr Sunil Kadri, Director, Aquaculture Innovation; and an insight into past, present and future genetic technologies in salmon farming by Professor Terje Refstie, Senior Scientific Advisor, Akvaforsk Genetics and Professor Ross Houston, The Roslin Institute, University of Edinburgh.

Through sharing first hand experiences, the series of diverse speakers will make the case for how advancing our collective understanding of these underlying issues, challenges and trends, is the only way to ensure that aquaculture can support a prosperous future for people, animals and the environment.

After the seminar, Benchmark is inviting participants to network where there will be a themed British pub,  including a taster platter of classic British food and beer. As we all know, good people and interesting conversation are vital to any great pub.
