Welcome to our lunch buffet serving up the following six dishes or lectures:

The sea food of the future (sv. Framtidens mat från havet)
The lecture focuses on environmentally smart production of food from the ocean (e.g. algae, shellfish, fish). Globally, aquaculture is the fastest growing food sector. Today, about half of all seafood consumed by us humans is farmed.
This lecture will be held in Swedish.
Presenter: Kristina Snuttan Sundell, Professor, SWEMARC, Dept. of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of  Gothenburg.


Sea cucumber - a delicacy from the ocean (sv. Sjögurka - delikatess från havet)
Get an insight into the life of sea cucumbers. Sea cucumbers can contribute to sustainable aquaculture and is considered a delicacy in Asia. Are there sea cucumbers in Sweden and can you farm them?This lecture will be held in Swedish.
Presenter: Ellen Schagerström, researcher, SWEMARC, Dept. of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of  Gothenburg.


Seaweed: a sustainable resource of our future
Seaweeds are important to the marine ecosystem in many ways. They are also a future resource for new foods, pharmaceuticals and fossil-free biomaterials. In this presentation, you will learn about our many and different seaweeds, and the ongoing research on how to use them in a sustainable way.
Presenter: Sophie Steinhagen, forskare, SWEMARC, Department of marine sciences, University of  Gothenburg.

Sustainable ingredients to produce fish feed (sv. Hållbara ingredienser för att producera fiskfoder)
The fish feed industry is looking for sustainable feed ingredients. The aquaculture industry has great potential, but a major challenge is renewable feed. Using side streams from the fish processing industry, as a raw material in fish feed, increases resource efficiency and contributes to more sustainable food production.
This lecture will be held in Swedish.
Presenter: Niklas Warwas, PhD student, SWEMARC, Dept. of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of  Gothenburg.


How about farmed Atlantic wolffish on the menu? (sv. Vad sägs om odlad havskatt på menyn?)
In Sweden, the most farmed fish on our plates is Norwegian salmon, but aquaculture could offer more! Within the ARCTAQUA project, we work with Norwegian, Finnish and Russian partners. We develop sustainable farming models for new species, something that can open up for increased diversity in the fish farms and in the fish counter.
This lecture will be held in Swedish.
Presenter: Elisabeth Jönsson Bergman, Lecturer, SWEMARC, Dept. of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of  Gothenburg.


Sustainable aquaculture systems is the future!
Recirculating Aquaculture Systems (RAS) are the future of sustainable Swedish aquaculture development. This presentation will show you how anammox bacteria, algae and membranes can improve wastewater treatments.
Presenter: Jonathan Roques, researcher, SWEMARC, Dept. of Biological and Environmental Sciences, University of  Gothenburg.
