Lallemand gathered world leading aquaculture experts and industry players in Bangkok for its first South East Asia Aquaculture symposium: Intgestinal Health in Aquaculture. A Sustainable way towards performance.
“In the current challenging context of Aquaculture, intestinal health has a critical role to play to optimize the performance of our Aquaculture systems”
Lallemand Animal Nutrition was pleased to host its main Aquaculture technical event for the first time in South East Asia. This highly technical event dedicated to fish and shrimp intestinal health gathered more than 200 participants from South East Asia, central Asia and Middle East over a 2-day conference. A total of 13 eminent speakers and experts from all over the world gave more than 15 scientific and technical presentations in the areas of microbiology, immunity, nutrition, fish and shrimp health. Particular attention was paid at highlighting the recent advances and knowledge on intestinal health in Aquatic species and the importance of gut management when developing innovative and sustainable solutions to optimize the performance of aquaculture systems. Academic speakers and Lallemand‘s product manager also delivered the state of the science about the mechanisms of action and benefits of the unique, scientific based and field supported probiotic strain Pediococcus acidilactici MA18/5M (BACTOCELL®).
Key industrial companies, farmers, scientists and nutritionists attended this event, and positively received the highly technical scope of this seminar, making it, as expressed by the participants, “a unique event at the crossroads of science and industry”.
“These two days meet our expectations and willingness to make this seminar a pure scientific and technical event, providing the audience high level and up-to-date scientific information. We thank once again all the renowned speakers that accepted to participate and to deliver their message in a clear and committed manner.
We would like also to thank all the participants for the interest they expressed and all the positive feedback we received. We trust the audience has well perceived the key message we wanted to deliver: in the current challenging context of Aquaculture, intestinal health has a critical role to play to optimize the performance of our Aquaculture system. Even though a more focus and dedicated approach is absolutely necessary at the academic and R&D level, specifically in the shrimp sector, sustainable and consistent solutions are already being developed and applied. This is what Lallemand is aiming at with its consistent and efficient microbial based solutions”, concluded Dr Castex, Product manager at Lallemand.
