Bord Iascaigh Mhara has announced the speaker programme for its “Farmed Irish Seaweed: An Ocean Wonder Food?”which takes place on 18 and 19 November next in The Radisson Blu Hotel, Limerick.
Commenting at the conference programme unveiling, Donal Maguire, Director of Aquaculture Development Services said:
“BIM are pleased to host a conference that will showcase some of Ireland and the world's most sought-after seaweed experts.
“The speaker line-up on offer should appeal to a diverse audience that ranges from the scientific to the commercial.
“The day-long conference will offer delegates an opportunity to hear the latest findings and expert opinion and analysis on how Ireland can best drive forward its own budding farmed seaweed sector. Central to our conference programme will be the information sessions BIM will run on how delegates can become involved in Ireland's farmed seaweed sector either as new entrants or as seafood professionals looking to further diversify their raw material base.
“The morning-long interactive forum which will follow the main conference will facilitate useful discussion and debate on the challenges and opportunities Ireland's farmed seaweed sector faces as it develops to reach its full market potential both at a domestic and global level.”
