Aquaculture Innovation Workshops (AIW) provide an opportunity for aquaculture producers, scientists, engineers, aquaculture industry suppliers, regulators and investors to communicate progress on the technical, biological and economic feasibility of culturing fish—particularly salmon—to post-smolt or market size in closed-containment systems using floating or recirculating aquaculture system (RAS) technology. This international summit is hosted by The Conservation Fund's Freshwater Institute.
