INCAR researcher will participate in the Climate Change and Sustainability seminar organized by Salmonexpert

Climate change poses a significant challenge in today’s world, affecting various industries including aquaculture. Recognizing the importance of addressing this issue, Salmonexpert has partnered with experts in the field, led by Dr. Doris Soto of the Incar Center, to create a comprehensive compendium focused on sustainability and climate change, with a specific emphasis on salmon farming. The compendium covers a range of topics, including the direct impact of climate change on water quality parameters, the association between these changes and infectious and non-infectious diseases, the socio-ecological vulnerability of the aquaculture industry in the face of a changing climate, risk mapping for prevention and early warnings, and potential institutional and legislative changes required to adapt to this new reality.  

Salmonexpert has already published five chapters from this compendium, which can be accessed in each issue of the Salmonexpert magazine. To further highlight the importance of this topic, Salmonexpert will be hosting a unique seminar titled “Climate change: salmon farming with a sustainable approach.” The seminar will not only feature the launch of the compendium but also a series of eight talks by different experts, providing valuable insights into the subject. In addition to the talks, the event will provide a platform for networking and sharing experiences among industry professionals and experts.  

The seminar will take place at the Hotel Cumbres in Puerto Varas on Wednesday, December 13, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. It will be divided into two modules, with the first focusing on climate change and the second on sustainability. Registration for the event is free, and attendees will have the opportunity to engage with like-minded individuals and gain valuable knowledge on how to approach salmon farming in a sustainable manner amidst the challenges posed by climate change.
