The 5th Offshore Mariculture Conference will benefit fish farmers who are either growing their offshore fish farming business or are looking to move their businesses offshore.

Delegates from more than 18 countries have already signed up to the two day technical conference and organisers can now confirm that delegates will have the opportunity to visit the Piscicoltura del Golfo di Gaeta (P2G) offshore fish farm on the third and final day of the conference.

The P2G fish farm is located within the Gulf of Gaeta and consists of 72 floating cages, including 10 cages of 28m diameter, 34 cages of 22m diameter and 28 cages of 16m diameter. The annual output is approximately 1,980 tons, including a guaranteed 165 tons of sea bass and sea bream per month.

Delegates will enjoy a full day excursion where they will have the opportunity to board a boat to visit the offshore cages and view the farm's operations. A buffet lunch will be served, followed by a question and answer session with the farming managers.

The 2014 conference will be chaired by Alessandro Lovatelli, Aquaculture Officer, FAO, and the final conference programme is available to view online at www.offshoremariculture.com.
