“In my opinion, this is one of the best Aquaculture innovation conferences in the world”

Carsten Krome, CEO, HATCH

Are you a start-up working in aquaculture? Apply today to pitch your technologies in our Innovation Showcase to our entire audience of investors, retailers, protein producers and more!

Why Attend

The Aquaculture Innovation Forum is going face-to-face! Returning to London on the 6th of September, the forum is a two-day event reuniting the aquaculture and livestock industry for extensive networking opportunities and content covering the biggest topics in aquaculture.

Already a $243.5 billion industry, aquaculture holds the potential to meet the growing global demand for more sustainable forms of protein, however, faces immense challenges related to the potential adverse impacts to habitats, effect on wildlife stocks and threats to water quality which is keeping investment at bay.

Join us in London on the 6th and 7th of September to drive industry collaboration, investment and innovation to build a sustainable aquaculture Industry.

Working across Aquaculture and Livestock?

This year, the Aquaculture Innovation Forum is running with the Livestock Innovation Summit and is focused on future-proofing the livestock industries to meet the growing global demand for protein. Click here for more information.

Innovation Showcase

Apply to be one of the 10 start-ups in aquaculture, handpicked by our Selection Committee to present your innovative ideas at the event. 
The Innovation Showcase is a unique opportunity for start-ups to present their technology to an audience of financial investors and large corporate firms. Whether you are looking to connect directly with your customer to enter a commercial partnership or seeking financial investment to accelerate product development this is your opportunity to stand out!
The following technology areas are of key interest, but other areas will be considered: 
  • Health & Welfare: diagnostics, humane slaughter, environmental enrichment, transportation and handling
  • Nutrition: effective feeding systems
  • Digital: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Blockchain, IoT Integration, monitoring, surveillance, and diagnostics.
