World Fishing & Aquaculture magazine reports live from OMC 2017, providing up-to-the-minute multimedia coverage of all the presentations and debates from Ensenada, Baja California on 6-10 March.

This blog will provide readers with access to highlights of the presentations at this years' Offshore Mariculture Conference, which include insights into projects by the world’s foremost experts in aquaculture technology, feed, species, marketing and investment, and will feature keynote speeches from Mexican government officials.

The programme will highlight recent advances and will focus on the sustainable implementation of new offshore methods designed to maximise production and efficiency. 

Whether you are at the conference or reading at home, we want you to be involved. We welcome your comments and photos, and if you have a question for any of our speakers, the World Fishing & Aquaculture Editor, Quentin Bates, will do his best to get them answered, posting the response here on the blog.

Anyone wishing to join the conversation, including asking questions to speakers or responding to their comments, can contact us on Twitter at @OM_Conference or @world_fishing.

We hope you enjoy our live coverage of the Offshore Mariculture Conference 2017
