Biomin Aquaculture Partners with WAS
(AUSTRIA, 3/1/2010)
Biomin embraces the new year with a bold plunge in aquaculture. For the first time, Biomin will be partnering the World Aquaculture Society (WAS) with the sponsorship of the Aquafeeds session at Aquaculture 2010.

To be held in San Diego from 1 to 5 March, Aquaculture 2010 is the largest event for the global aquaculture industry. Hosted every year by the WAS, the global aquaculture event is expected to draw some 4000 participants from over 80 countries, including high profile attendees who form the core of decision-makers and innovators in the aquatic business.

Held on the 4th of March, the session on Aquafeeds will see expert speakers from commercial practice and academia share their insights on major issues in Aquafeeds formulation, and alternatives to fishmeal and protein replacement strategies for a variety of aquatic species.


Years of dedicated applied research and investments have strengthened Biomin’s drive and reputation in providing effective natural-based feed solutions for the aquaculture and Aquafeed business throughout the world. A core focus on fundamental applied research forms the basis of Biomin’s portfolio of science-based aquaculture product solutions, Biomin® AquaSpecials, which includes nutraceuticals, probiotics, natural growth promoters, mycotoxin deactivators, and functional feed additives.

Dr. Pedro Encarnação, Biomins’s aquaculture specialist said: “Biomin is a research-focused and -driven company. We have translated our longstanding competence in animal nutrition for terrestrial species into aquaculture and Aquafeed research. Our Aquatic Centre for Applied Animals (AQUACAN) in Thailand actively conducts feeding trials for many aquatic species, from which new findings have been translated into innovative and practical solutions in Aquafeeds.”


Biomin will also participate as a sponsor at the Australasian Aquaculture 2010, another WAS event to be held in Hobart, Australia in May, and at the Aquaculture Europe that will take place in Porto, Portugal in October, both of which are key events for aquaculture in the coming year.

Biomin is a company dedicated to natural health in animal nutrition. In a rented warehouse in 1983 the "idea" of Biomin was born. It quickly developed into a company which is now counted among the global players in the field of healthy animal feed. The market presence in more than 100 countries in Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and America is characteristic for the position of Biomin in the global market.
