Join the first Skretting FISH Great talk on disruptive innovations

Monday, April 19, 2021

Skretting’s FISH Great Talks will start on April 22 bringing together interesting guests to address topics related to biotechnology, artificial intelligence, the development of science and digital transformation for the aquaculture industry. 

This year, the initiative, which since its inception was supported by DSM, Hendrix Genetics and Scale AQ as sponsors, will offer five new events in which expert exhibitors from the different companies associated with the project will participate. The first will take place on April 22 at 11:30 am (UTC -4) and will feature Ronald Barlow, general manager of Skretting Chile and Joost Matthijssen, Venturing director of Nutreco, who will speak about the importance of the collaboration and support that the company provides to startups through NuFrontiers, the investment division of Nutreco. The talk, called Disruptive innovation and international collaboration, will share ideas on how to work with innovation to solve the challenges of aquaculture through an agile and disruptive perspective.

“To achieve our purpose of Feeding the Future, we will need to revolutionize the way we produce proteins, which will require an unprecedented level of innovation. Nutreco is committed to playing a key role in the development of new solutions, with a special focus on the areas of alternative proteins, alternative production systems, nutrition, health and precision aquaculture together with the use of digital tools. Our Skretting and Trouw Nutrition divisions stand out globally for research and development of products and services that help customers drive the aquaculture industry forward in a more sustainable direction,” said Matthijssen. “Nutreco's investment division called NuFrontiers focuses on breakthrough innovations and investments, opening our company to completely new markets. Its aim is to identify, develop and invest in revolutionary next-generation innovations throughout the entire value chain of our proteins. Thus, we focus on new technologies that address the main obstacles and opportunities in our value chain and that, ultimately, could change the way food is produced, even significantly reducing its environmental footprint.”

The new cycle of FISH Great Talks will be transmitted by streaming and will present a hybrid format, where the presenters will be linked from a live studio alonf with invited speakers from different parts of the world. The talks will be broadcast in an intermediate step between face-to-face and virtual.
