BioMarine 2012 London, UK 24-25 Oct

The Fishmongers’ Hall was an amazing heritage venue for the 2012 BioMarine Summit. In a cosy ambiance, our 150 attendees were in the best conditions to network, exchange, dialogue and make business. BioMarine is definitely a place for trans-sector exchanges. We had many positive comments on the alchemy of our summit, bringing together many different points of view, working on so different issues.
The 6 think-tank sessions proved to be a really good working place and the concept itself fostered exchanges between participants. We covered most the interesting topics from marine bio resources including:

1- Algae – Aquafeed: « Macro-algae valorization: from the sea to the aquaculture markets »
2- Marine biotech for Health “Marine Bioresources: in the service of health and nutrition”
3- Nutraceuticals: “Omega-3s: Efficacy and purity…”
4- Aquaculture: “2030: The Aquaculture Platform- Facilitating significant growth in global aquaculture”
5- Marine Biotech for environement: “Understanding, managing and remediating our world”
6- Marine Micro algae & Nutrition: “ Marine Algal oils: novel applications in food, health and cosmaceuticals”

“… I hope that through your work during those two days, you can directly contribute to the dissemination of the great advances in all fields of marine bioresources and to establish the best practices that contribute to the development of an overall conservation of our most essential resource: the oceans.

These oceans were the cradle of life on earth; they would be the main source of our food in the future. I call on the whole BioMarine Community to mobilize in order to find innovative solutions to emphasize the common heritage of mankind. …”
