Food of the future? Alltech symposium to present visions for aquaculture

“AQUATIC proteins are shaping up to become a major source of protein in a world where grains for animal production are becoming increasingly scarce. This potential role for aquaculture will be examined at animal feed company Alltech’s 26th International Animal Health and Nutrition Symposium, which will also provide research and analysis of recent nutritional breakthroughs, and what they mean for aquaculture.

Entitled Bounce Back 2010: A Time for People, Profits and Planet, Alltech’s 26th International Animal Health and Nutrition Symposium will take place at the Lexington Convention Center in Kentucky, USA, from May 16-19, 2010. The Symposium will explore boosting profits and working towards the sustainability of the environment in which aquaculture operates.

Sel-Plex® from Alltech, based on a specific strain of Saccharomyces cerevisiae CNCM I-3060, has been shown to increase the efficiency of aquaculture. Water recirculation is a method that is increasingly being used in the industry. Accurate knowledge of these and other discoveries, and how they may be applied, is essential for the future of the aquaculture industry, and the main focus for the symposium.

Attendees will have the opportunity to liaise with other industry professionals and experts to discuss these issues during a number of informative, aquaculture-specific seminars, exploring the following topics:

  • Nutritional breakthrough – Chromium: an often forgotten mineral. How it can improve aquaculture.
  • Navigating the global feed supply – Toxins: a disaster waiting to happen. The importance of quality control in a global economy.
  • Deliverable from research – Live feed enrichment for marine larvae with novel ingredient (Aquate).
  • Selenium nutrition – Getting this essential nutrient in the food chain: enhancing rotifer nutritional value to improve cod larval survival.
  • Yellow perch – How to raise the fish that has long been considered a major prospect for aquaculture.
  • Success stories – Raising Asian sea bass in a reticulation system.
  • Tilapia – The key to tilapia production is the performance of the fry.
  • Catfish – One of nature’s born survivors: More fibre, less grain with a nutritional breakthrough.
  • Breakthrough idea for 2010 – Case study of water recirculation at Marine Harvest in Chile.
  • Primacy of science in aquaculture – Tools for modulating intestinal microbial ecology and improved gut morphology of rainbow trout.

There will also be a number of expert speakers, including C. Daniels, National Lobster Hatchery, Cornwall, UK; S. Davies, University of Plymouth, Devon, UK; K. Filer, Alltech, Kentucky; K. Fitzsimmons, University of Arizona, Arizona; R. Fotedar, Curtin University, Australia; O. Garay, Marine Harvest, Chile; A. Nontawith, Kasetsart University, Bangkok, Thailand; S. Penglase, National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research, Norway; K. Wilda, Australis Aquaculture, Ltd., Massachusetts, USA.

Visit for further information and to request your place at Alltech’s 26th International Animal Health and Nutrition Industry Symposium.”
