Aquaculture in Asia: Video interview for Diamond V at 75
The aquaculture industry in Asia is poised for tremendous growth, according to Diamond V's Serve Corneillie, PhD, Technical and Business Development, Asia.
"There is an enormous market," Dr.Corneillie said. "On top of that, Asia has a fantastic environment, such as perfect temperatures all year round and consists of places that have very good protection against storms, ideal for fish and shrimp breeding. So they can produce in a safe way the whole year."
However, there are also serious challenges, especially in shrimp farms, where bacterial and viral diseases cause significant losses, Dr.Corneillie pointed out.
As part of the company's monthly video series, "Diamond V at 75: Immune Strength for Life" to celebrateits history in the animal and feed industries and highlight its scientific research, technical expertise, and vision for the future, Diamond V's Kevin Corizzo interviewed Dr.Corneillie for the August episode, which focuses on a growing segment of Diamond V's business portfolio – aquaculture.
Dr.Corneillie noted that there is an increasing demand for healthy products in Asia – and people have more money to spend on these products. He added, "So, I think the future looks very, very good for aquaculture."
In addition, Dr.Corneillie is scheduled to speak at The Aquaculture Roundtable Series in Chiang Mai, Thailand on August 15.
