TA 3. Managing the Biological Lifecycle
Chair: Patrick Lavens – INVE Technologies (Belgium)
Facilitator: Béatrice Chatain – IFREMER (France)
Contact – TABiology@eatip.eu
"European aquaculture in 2030 will produce larger volumes and contribute to a decrease of imports through a significant improvement of its competitiveness. It will also focus on being a commercial stakeholder in aquaculture worldwide. For the biological inputs, this competitiveness will be obtained from: Product specificity, targeted production environments, a high level of professionalism & skills and clear political & societal support."
Identified KEY GOALS:
- Establish predictability and improve output and cost control at every production stage of the lifecycle
- Genetic improvement of productive, health and welfare traits
- Improve broodstock management methods and control of sex and reproduction in captivity
- Manage the lifecycle of carefully selected "new" species that have high economic importance
