"Aquaculture in Switzerland" as a topic is increasingly gaining interest.
Swiss fish offers opportunities to market new products and to sustainably differentiate oneself. Aquacultures are sources of hope for a sustainable supply and at the same time are recording high growth rates. The focus is on a holistic view of the system - in addition to "biological, ecological, technical" issues, it is also important to address "legal, economic and market communication issues, etc.". In addition to the business idea, there is also a need for successful clarification of a wide range of issues. The exchange of ideas is essential for success. The Innovation Group is a proven platform for professional exchange and the launch of projects.
Together with the ZHAW's Aquaculture Systems Division, (Fachgruppe Aquakultur-Systeme der ZHAW) we are reorganising the Aquaculture Innovation Group.
On 20 October 2016, 48 interested parties met for the first meeting of the Aquaculture Innovation Group.
The first meeting of the aquaculture group was followed up by numerous presentations:
What is necessary to make Swiss fish a success?
The meeting showed that the Innovation Group is the right platform to develop the answers to this question. Aquaculture offers the opportunity to completely rethink successful approaches. They also have disruptive potential.
The documents of the meeting are exclusively available to the participants and can be obtained in the member area.
The Innovation Group is open for further interested parties and we are happy to answer your questions.
