The 2022 Seafood Expo North America, which took place 13 to 15, March in Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.A., and the 2022 Seafood Expo Global, 26 to 28 April, 2022, in Barcelona, Spain, featured a comprehensive conference program of live panel events focusing on topics chosen to be of vital interest to the seafood industry.

The 28 individual presentations from SENA and the 21 sessions from SEG featured exclusive information and insight from seafood industry experts, including economic forecasts and analysis on the trends and topics impacting the global seafood industry as it navigates issues of trade, food safety, traceability, aquaculture, sustainability, and consumption trends. Now, a video recording of each of these sessions is available for on-demand replay.

Featuring SeafoodSource Executive Editor Cliff White, Aquaco CEO Joe Cardenas, Nordic Aquafarms President and CEO Erik Heim, Kingfish Zeeland CEO Ohad Maiman, and AquaBounty President Sylvia Wulf, “RAS Project Development in the United States” is available free for SeafoodSource Premium members, or for individual purchase to non-Premium members for USD 45. It was presented on Monday, 14 March, 2022, with the following description:

While still small in size compared to major global players, the U.S. aquaculture sector is experiencing growth at all levels, from mom-and-pop sized aquafarms to massive projects such as Atlantic Sapphire’s development in Florida and Nordic Aquafarms efforts in Maine. While still a young industry domestically, the field of viable players is growing and the impact to the marketplace is certain. This panel will concentrate on the rapidly expanding number of recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) projects completed or under development in the United States, with a special focus on hearing from the producers themselves. Joe Cardenas, founder and CEO of Aquaco Farms, Nordic Aquafarms President and Co-Founder Erik Heim, Kingfish Zeeland CEO and Co-Founder Ohad Maiman, and American Fresh Fillets President J. Michael Mogollon will discuss the challenges and advantages of RAS in the U.S., from permitting to construction, and from farming to marketing and sales.

The entire package of videos from SENA and the entire package of videos from SEG can each be purchased for USD 250, but all are free to SeafoodSource Premium members.
