ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference will explore the transformative power of ideas that can change aquaculture

February 16, 2018

Explore how nutritional solutions can help protect fish fillets, maximize genetic potential and much more.ONE18 will offer fish producers an opportunity to explore topics specific to their industry and participate in a global exchange of ideas for the future.

Breakout sessions to focus on offshore and onshore salmon farms, fillet quality and genetic potential


[LEXINGTON, Ky.] – ONE: The Alltech Ideas Conference (ONE18), held May 20–22 in Lexington, Kentucky, will provide aqua producers with a unique opportunity to participate in a global conversation about the innovations, challenges and solutions facing their industry. Focus sessions designed to educate and inspire will allow producers to gather insights from leading aqua experts and exchange ideas with peers from around the globe.


ONE18 aqua topics:


Out of the 30,000 fish species in existence, selecting those suitable for aquaculture is challenging, as is the development of feed that meets their specific nutritional demands. Which fish species are being evaluated, and what is their potential? How do arapaima, cobia, yellowtail kingfish and pacu measure up?


When it comes to fillet quality, consumers want to ensure they’re spending their money on a premium product. Getting it right every time, and doing so sustainably, requires expertise and innovation. How can you use nutritional solutions to protect fish fillets for a consistently premium product?


Do you know what the gene chip means for your fish? It could unlock their genetic potential for maximum performance and productivity. How? Join us as we explore nutrigenomics.


As the aquaculture industry strives to manage finite fish meal supplies and fish oil resources, can we still produce a high-quality product? The solutions are out there. Learn how innovative ideas in feed development are helping aqua farmers convert to a zero fish in: fish out ratio. Come hear about Neo Green, a revolutionary trout diet from Coppens International.


Intensive recirculation systems provide opportunities for growth in the aquaculture industry, where feeding the fish is not the only challenge. We must also maintain a complete and healthy ecosystem. From sturgeon to salmon and catfish to eels, the growth potential of this sector is enormous. Is this the future of aquaculture? Can we feed the world and maintain profitability?


Can we provide the engineering solutions necessary for the harsh environment of the open ocean? Can we realistically produce 5 kilograms of salmon onshore in closed systems? Join Leif Rune Pederson of Norway's Erko Seafood as he dives into industry challenges and solutions.

*Topics subject to change as the schedule evolves.

Now in its 34th year, Alltech’s conference is attended annually by nearly 4,000 people from over 70 countries. Whether producers are navigating a fundamental change within the aqua industry or just need a little inspiration, they’ll learn about real-world opportunities and solutions at ONE18.
