Belgium headquartered Nutriad, a pioneer in species specific additive solutions for fish and shrimp, participated in the 9th Future Fish Eurasia exhibition, which was organized at the Izmir International Fair Center (Turkey). The event gathered suppliers of fish feed, fish additives, farming equipment, veterinary services and vaccines, and fish processing equipment with a strong focus on the Turkish aquaculture market. It provided a great opportunity for Nutriad to further engage with the aqua industry in a dynamic and rapidly growing market.
Despite the challenging current economic climate in Turkey, the fair was well attended by fish producers from Turkey and surrounding countries. Turkey continues to be a strong fish producer, totaling over 250,000 MT of seabass, seabream and trout. Diversification of marine aquaculture is starting to take off too, with industry sources confirming the stocking of 4-5 million fry of an emerging species of marine fish, meagre (Argyrosomus regius).
Nutriad, together with its aquaculture partners in Turkey, Nutriad Yem and Avet, were present with a booth. “Turkey is a focus market for Nutriad. We have a strong position in this market thanks to our specialized product portfolio for marine fish and trout, our aquaculture partners and our broad offer of services to support the mostly vertically integrated industry in Turkey”, says Peter Coutteau, Business Unit Director Aquaculture for Nutriad. The “Aqua Café” at the Nutriad booth served snacks and drinks throughout the exhibition and was much appreciated by participants.
