Fish Feed & Nutrition Workshop

This workshop is an industry-focused event that takes place every other year in various
locations across North America. The workshop is designed to provide a forum for
discussion similar to the larger International Symposium on Fish Nutrition and Feeding
but with a focus on fish feed and nutrition activities in Canada, Mexico and the USA.
The schedule includes presentations on basic and applied topics while leaving plenty of
time for interactions and healthy debates (conflicting viewpoints are recognized as
passionate engagement!). The workshop is designed to provide a casual atmosphere
with only one room and one talk at a time. The agenda covers current challenges that
the industry is facing, reviews key research focus areas and offer creative solutions and
opportunities to the challenges ahead.
