Mr. Salvador Maturana he attended as representative of the Department of Innovation, Universities and Enterprise (DIUE). Likewise, in the meeting took part a significant number of Catalan producers, as well as, researchers from the XRAq.

The meeting was beneficial and useful to assess the state of the sector, the relationship and knowledge transfer in the field of research and the actions to be taken in the immediate future. Can I highlight the importance of the work in the col.collaboration and the valorarització of the product of aquaculture. In this sense, there was talk of the priority of enhancing the quality of the product, the need to identify the product with its origin and the possibilities of creation of a brand.

This meeting aims to have continuity in the next appointment on sectors of importance in the framework of the Exporapita – Sant Carles de la Ràpita 14,15 and 16 of October – which will be held in conjunction the II Symposium of Aquaculture of Catalonia, the Technical Conference of the IRTA, in Aquaculture and the Conference of Therapeutics in fish farming.
