Aquaculture production is currently growing and will continue to do so in the coming years due to a substantial increase in demand. “According to the report ‘ fishing up to 2030: prospects for fishing and aquaculture”, released by the World Bank, the United Nations Organization for food and Agriculture (FAO) and the International Research Institute on food policies (IFPRI), two out of every three fish dishes in 2030 will come from aquaculture. In that year, It´s expected Asia – including Southeast Asia, China and Japan – to represent 70% of the global consumption of fish.

According to the study, both fishing and aquaculture are two important sources of employment and resources for developing countries. However, the diseases affecting aquaculture crop species are one of the main challenges and threats of the sector. To overcome that, Bionaturis works in preventive solutions such as oral vaccines intended to fight the most devastating salmon diseases. The company is also integrated in the European Targetfish project, dedicated to the research and development of preventive solutions for aquaculture, involving 30 partners from 13 different countries.
