Aker BioMarine is headed to Singapore to attend World Aquaculture Singapore (WAS) from November 29 to December 2. This event marks the first time that the World Aquaculture Society hosts its annual gathering in Singapore, and Aker BioMarine’s QRILL Aqua team will be onsite to exhibit. In addition, Dr. Alberto Nunes will present on how Antarctic krill can benefit the rapidly growing aquaculture industry.
Find Aker BioMarine at WAS 2022, booth #307 near the main entrance of Singapore Expo.
WAS is a major, international tradeshow, which promises to showcase the latest in aquaculture technology, with exhibitors from around the world. Innovation and sustainability are key themes at the event – topics that are strategically important to Aker BioMarine.
During the event, Aker BioMarine plans to engage with WAS attendees on a range of topics related to krill, including product innovation, scientific research, and how the krill fishery works to achieve its stellar sustainability ratings. The company continues to expand its presence in the Asia-Pacific region, as feed producers seek sustainable, functional ingredients like krill that help them improve feed efficiency and quality.
Aker BioMarine’s team from across Asia will be onsite and have high expectations for the event.
“Our goal at WAS is to spread the word about krill, a natural ingredient that is making a big impact on aquafeeds. We will also share our findings from a recent trial in which krill was evaluated as a feed ingredient for shrimp,” said Atul Barmann, General Manager, from Aker BioMarine India.
“Asia Pacific is experiencing rapid growth in the aquaculture sector, especially in shrimp and marine species. Krill can play an important role in the future of aquaculture, and I look forward to meeting customers from across the region face-to-face at WAS,” said Chaiyot Rawekchom, Regional Sales Director, from Aker BioMarine South-East Asia.
“We are excited to take part in the biggest aquaculture event in Asia Pacific, and exhibit krill as a sustainable and innovative feed ingredient to the world. We plan to show our line-up of products, and talk to customers about improving their feed costs and quality of the feed with krill,” said Bawanta Suta, Sales Manager, from Aker BioMarine Indonesia.
Research on krill’s impact of Pacific whiteleg shrimp to be shared at WAS 2022
The research into the impact of krill as a feed ingredient in the Pacific whiteleg shrimp diet will be presented by Dr. Alberto Nunes from Instituto de Ciências do Mar, Brazil (Labomar), during the WAS 2022. He will speak about how krill oil improves growth in shrimp juveniles under osmotic stress in enclosed tanks. Shrimp farmers commonly struggle with juvenile shrimp growth due to hypersaline conditions. Dr. Nunes aims to show the WAS audience how krill can reduce that effect and stimulate greater growth.
