With a Compounded Annual Growth Rate of 5.1%, aquaculture is the fastest growing food producing sector in the world, and is projected to reach USD 200 billion in 2019. At the same time, this young industry still has to catch up with the highly-industrialised livestock farming sector in terms of technological applications of nutrition, genetics, health and technology.

The market as well as academia have recognized this gap and is currently buzzing with innovation in these fields. We are witnessing opportunities that have the potential to make fish farming much more efficient and environmentally sustainable in the near future. These innovations often originate from R&D departments at universities, research institutes or small, progressive companies, and many face the same questions called the “Technology Transfer Gap”:

 

What is my innovation worth in the market?

How do I start, run and grow a business?

Where do I get funding from?
