With a world population that could reach 9 billion people by 2030, we anticipate the growing importance of aquaculture as an essential source of protein for humans in the years to come. We have been present for several years in all the key segments of the sector, in both warm and cold waters, and we are continuing our actions to help farmers meet this growing demand in a sustainable manner.
- Prevent the main aquaculture diseases, for a more harmonious and sustainable growth of species
- Protocols adapted to the specificities of the farms
- Invest in research to develop innovative preventive solutions
On a global scale, mortality in aquaculture farms is estimated to be between 10 and 20% in salmon and up to 60% in tilapia. Our teams are committed to contributing to significantly reducing this rate and reducing the use of antibiotics by proposing alternatives to ensure a more harmonious and sustainable growth of species. This is done primarily through the development of vaccination. For example, for tilapia farms, the fastest growing segment of aquaculture, we offer a wide range of vaccines developed in collaboration with external partners. Prevention also means monitoring water quality and adopting bioremediation solutions, which improve the living environment of the animals, and combating nutritional imbalances with nutraceuticals to strengthen their natural defenses.
