New Nutrition and Feed Technology research director at Nofima to speak at Aquafeed Horizons 2015



Dr. Mari Moren will address future possibilities and demands in salmon feed production at the 8th Aquafeed Horizons Conference, taking place alongside the FIAAP/VICTAM/GRAPAS tradeshows in Cologne, Germany on June 9.

Dr. Moren took up her post as Director of Research at the Norwegian food research institute in October, where she takes responsibility for the Nutrition and Feed Technology research areas of Nofima's Aquaculture division.

"Dr. Moren's team carries out research, development and innovation projects along the complete aquaculture value chain, with a special focus on research into new feed raw materials, feed technology and questions related to nutrition", Aquafeed Horizon's organiser, Suzi Dominy said. "Nofima's expertise dovetails with the theme of this year's conference, and we are excited by the knowledge and expertise Dr. Moren will be able to contribute to the meeting".

"Nutrition and feed technology are two fields within aquaculture that undergo continual development, in order to keep pace with new species, raw materials and forms of production. I expect to be able to contribute in my new post to research and development in these fields becoming even more focussed on the future," Dr. Moren said.

Dr. Moren joins world-class experts who will discuss the latest aquaculture feed production knowledge and know-how. They include practical researchers from institutes such as the Norwegian University of Life Sciences and also other industry specialists.

The impact of processing on feed ingredients and nutrient quality; aquafeed processing considerations when using novel ingredients; and, new aquafeed processing technology will be among the topics discussed in a full day of practically-orientated presentations.

The conference brings together aquaculture feed industry professionals from around the world. The 2014 conference took place April 8, 2014 at the BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand, and brought together 140 delegates from aquafeed companies and other industry stakeholders.


The eighth edition of the Aquafeed Horizons conference will take place alongside VICTAM/FIAAP/GRAPAS 2015. 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of VICTAM.
