Background

Aqua - Business, Investment, Government (Aqua B.I.G. 2016) is being held 2-4 September 2016 in Hong Kong.

At each Aqua B.I.G event we will focus on one BIG challenge for the industry so that we can engage key players and thinkers to concentrate their thoughts on a solution to a major issue. For our first challenge we have chosen the subject of PACKAGING. Every year between 6 and 8 million tons of plastic finds its way into the oceans, yet the seafood industry continues to use plastic in so many ways in its packaging.

We are calling on all interested individuals and organisations to get involved and share their ideas and concepts on materials, methods and concepts for elimination of the use of plastics in packaging in the seafood industry. This can be at any point in the value chain. It may be a system already in use in some location or it may be new technology, or simply an idea –  if you have a solution to the problem then please share your concepts and enter the competition.

We wish you luck and look forward to seeing you in Hong Kong.
