At Aqua Nor 2019, Benchmark will highlight the importance of a multi-disciplinary approach to help tackle the salmon industry’s biggest challenges

Experts will gather from Benchmark’s genetics, advanced nutrition, health and knowledge services businesses at the four-day event in Trondheim, Norway on 20 -23 August.

Present will be Neil Robertson, head of CleanTreat, Benchmark’s new water purification system that has the potential to revolutionise the application of medicinal sea lice treatments by purifying treatment water and bringing an end to the discharge of treatment water into the sea.

Mr Robertson commented, “For a truly sustainable system we must optimise genetics, health, and nutrition as well as providing knowledge to determine livestock performance. I look forward to joining my colleagues to showcase the importance of bringing together technological innovations targeted at each stage of the production lifecycle.

“At Benchmark we take a holistic approach to the industry’s challenges, meaning we consider the economics, ethics, and environmental factors of each system. Environmental protection is a fundamental element of this and I am confident that CleanTreat has the potential to be a real game changer for the industry”.

Benchmark’s ‘English pub’ themed seminar will be held on 20th August in the Clarion Hotel in Trondheim from 3.15pm and will feature presentations from Benchmark’s chief executive, Malcolm Pye, Nofima’s Auden Iversen, and genetics experts Trygve Gjedrem and Professor Ross Houston.
