Are you interested in learning about the emerging industry of aquaculture?
Join this 60-minute KnipBio webinar, to learn examples of engineering solutions based on biotechnology that will help the sustainable expansion of this field. Aquaculture, or the farming of fish, shrimp and seaweeds, is expected to continue its dramatic growth in the coming decades. One of the central issues for the continued growth of aquaculture will be the supply of high quality ingredients. The standard options available today cannot be expanded significantly and or are incomplete solutions at best. In order to both keep up with the global need and protect our natural resources, new sources of protein inputs need to be developed.
What you can expect:
- Learn about current issues and possibilities for protein production in aquaculture
- Understand opportunities for existing bio-industrial facilities to be adapted towards 21st century food insecurity issues
- See how biotechnology is being used to augment protein shortages
- Explore some of the challenges including: developing novel technologies for a young industry, market adoption of new products, application to an existing biorefinery
- Examine differences between aquaculture and other animal protein sectors
