Haavind and Fearnley Securities – Aquaculture Seminar 2020

Fearnley Securities and Law Firm Haavind have the pleasure of inviting you to a half-day Aquaculture Seminar focused on land based salmon farming.

The market for salmon continues to be strong, with new companies and initiatives moving the aquaculture operation from sea to land. Land based farming mitigates many of the challenges in traditional sea based farming and substantial growth is expected. Fearnley Securities and Haavind are strong believers in the opportunities and the technological solutions for post-smolt and harvest size fish including the solutions for waste handling.

The seminar will be opened by The Minister of Fisheries & Seafood, Odd Emil Ingebrigtsen. Following the Minister we will hear from Havvind and Fearnley Securities in-house experts, system providers and the land based salmon farmers. We will facilitate Q&A after each speaker as well as a dedicated round-table discussion.

Link to the webinar will be distributed to registered participants shortly before the event start.

We look forward to «e-see» you!
