3 questions to Guillaume Dekoninck from the Echo Village : :
02/28/2019

What’s your activity?

We run an aquaponics farm. We produce trout and eel as well as leafy vegetables and aromatic plants (cabbage, tomatoes, persil, basilic, tarragon,..). The operation is simple: the excrement from the fish provides with a nutrient-rich water, which is then used for growing vegetables and fruits (the excrements are mineralized through biofilters, they are transformed into nitrite, then in nitrates). Plants absorbed the excrements and purify the water. It is a sustainable system since it operates in a close circuit.

Who are your products/services addressed to?

Our products are addressed to the restauration, to the middle distribution and to individuals. With 15€ or 25€ per week,they can obtain supplies of vegetables and fish from the farm.

Why are innovation and research important in your activity sector?

Innovation is the heart of our work. Aquapony is a very innovative activity which allows to recycle discards and obtain a turnover from two types of production: horticulture and fish farming. In this activity, research enables us to improve the production (i.e. boosting the growth of plants with LED lights) or to combine different activities with aquapony (such as smoking of fish).

The Pôle AQUIMER supports its companies with their innovation strategies

Working lunch with the EU on "the environmental labelling of the aquatic products” :
02/19/2019

On Tuesday, February 19, we organised a working lunch on the environmental labellingof aquatic products. Sponsored by Alain Cadec, in the presence of the Hauts-de-France region and the Directorate General for Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, for Research and Innovation, the ICV Aqua and ICV Pêche projects were illustrated.

The ICV Aqua and ICV Pêche projects had the objective to develop Life Cycle inventories, especially ICV Aqua for the fishery, aquaculture and proceeding and ICV Pêche, only for fishery.

The presentation gave rise to a constructive discussion among the participants on the challenges of the environmental labelling and the contribution brought by both the projects at the European level. The European Commission confirmed both its interest in the projects and its strong commitment to the environmental labelling.

We want to say thanks to Alain Cadec, Chair of the EP Committee on Fisheries, for his support, attendance and introductory remarks, to Pierrette Ethuin (Ulco), Thomas Cloâtre (CNPMEM) and Julie Mancini (AQUIMER) for their presentations.

The aquaculture industry turns towards the EU! :
01/22/2019

On January 22-23, 2019 the Mirror Platforms (MiPs) of the European Aquaculture Technology and Innovation Platform (EATiP), of which we are a part, gathered in Berlin. This meeting aimed to start implementing the new EATiP strategic research and innovation agenda.

The meeting began with the election of Yolanda Morales from the cluster ACUIPLUS as the EATiP MiPs’ President.

Given the privileged access of the EATiP to the European Union, the MiPs decided to meet more frequently and new working groups were set up in order to both have a greater impact on the EU’s future strategy and improve the information-sharing among European aquaculture actors.

«As the French EATiP MiPs, we are able to report national industry’s issues and push forward the aquaculture sector at the European level » Margherita Vece, EU Project Manager, AQUIMER.

The meeting was concluded with a visit to an internationally known site of aquaponic production (tilapia and basil).

SMART AQUAPONICS :
11/20/2018

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The SMART AQUAPONICS project aims to ease the use of aquaponics in developing new tools (such an app) available for everyone. On November 20th 2018, we contributed to a workshop on the app’s content. It will be divided into three different steps :

  •  
  • A training program : via a smart gaming, this step will bring the theoric

-       A training program :this step will provide the theoretical modules necessary for the development of an aquaponic system.

-       A customized design tool: by indicating certain parameters, users will be able to design their aquaponics system (support, adapted equipment. . . )

-       Remote aquaponics system management: thanks to monitoring sensors developed as part of the project, users will be able to remotely manage the evolution of their aquaponics system and be alerted of an upstream failure.

The SMART AQUAPONICS consortium visited the partner structure PCG, in charge of developing and testing monitoring and TOMATO MASTERS sensors, which forms an industrial ecosystem with PCG and AQUA4C.

AQUA4C is a closed-loop fish farm that operates for water and energy in symbiosis with TOMATO MASTERS, specialized in the cultivation of aquaponic tomatoes.

PCG is the research organization that participated in the development of AQUA4C. It is specialized in plant growth and has aquaponic units on which it can rely to develop the sensors.

How to fit with the EU Landing Obligation ? :
11/07/2018

 

DiscardLess is a European project aiming to gradually reduce discards. It meets the challenge that implies the article 15 of the regulation of the Common Fisheries Policy. This regulation states the landing obligation of all catches and will enter into force from January 2019.

A restitution workshop was organized on November 7th 2018 in Paris ; fisheries organization representatives participated actively to this meeting, which led to fruitful exchanges.

The french partners of DiscardLess presented different elements of their researches :

- A national study on the opinion of professionals about the landing obligation ;

- Different adaptations of fishing strategies: selectivity and avoidance

- Impacts of discharges on marine ecosystems and exploited stocks-  La modification des navires pour mieux s’adapter

Valorization of unwanted catches

*A toolbox presented during the presentations will provide fishermen with tools (selectivity, avoidance, adjustments, etc. ) to help them adapt more easily to the obligation to land. For more information about the toolbox  please click here

Members of AQUIMER, you can find all the presentations of the restitution workshop on the watch center.
