13 December: New added-value products from fish and algae

You are cordially invited to a #BlueNordic workshop New added-value products from fish and algae on 13 December in Copenhagen. The workshop aims to come up new ways to produce added value and economic growth from aquatic biomasses, such as low value fish, fish side streams and microalgae.

Time: Wednesday, 13 December 2017 at 10am–4pm.

Registration: by 1 December 2017 via this link

Goals for the workshop include:
