Technical visits at Offshore Mariculture Mexico
The technical visits for this year’s Offshore Mariculture (OSM) Conference in Mexico will take in the best of the country's offshore farms and processing sites.
Visits will include a boat tour to the Pycmar Processing Facility and UABC Facility (University of Baja California), Pacifico Aquaculture Striped Bass, Baja Aquafarms Tuna and Oceanic Mussels and Oysters, Ocean Baja Labs Yellow Tail Hatchery and Abulones Cultivados Abalone Farm.
Pycmar Processing Facility uses the most advanced technologies to process large volumes of high-value, commercial species from the main fisheries, predominantly from the Pacific region.
Ocean Baja Labs has a state-of-the-art sustainable hatchery facility located south of Ensenada on the Baja peninsula. Producing Baja yellowtail, OBL built the first commercial Baja Yellowtail RAS (Recirculating Aquaculture System) in north America.
A boat tour to the Pacifico Aquaculture Striped Seabass offshore facilities will offer delegates insight into the farming of premium, sustainable, ocean-raised seabass.
The visit to the Abulones Cultivados Abalone Farm will provide insight into commercial operation of two culture systems, land-based juvenile production facility and ocean cage system where abalone is grown to market size.
OSM is jointly organised by Mercator Media Ltd and CESAIBC in Ensenada, Mexico, and forms part of a series of successful Offshore Mariculture Conferences organised in previous years by Mercator Media Ltd.
The conference will be held from the 6 to 10 March 2017 at the Ensenada State Centre of the Arts, Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico.
