The pressing need to produce more food for a growing population, coupled with growing pressure on fish stocks in the world’s oceans, has led to rapid growth in agriculture.  Fish farms already supply half the fish consumed globally, and that share could rise to two-thirds by 2019, according to the World Bank.

This talk will examine this trend and highlight emerging technologies from two perspectives: The investment side, where Francisco Gomes, Chief Executive Officer, Pontos Aqua Holdings will describe their investment strategy of focusing on sustainability in long term value; and the technology side where Ynsect is pioneering the use of insects into sustainable nutrient resource for agro-industries and bioactive compounds for green chemistry.
