Pilot Project Launch Event

On the 27th September 2022, we organised the launching event of the ‘’Implementation of a Pilot Project to demonstrate sustainable aquaculture models in Tunisia’’ approximately 80 people attended the event in person, and around 35 people joined online.

The event was fruitful; the presentation of the Pilot project really intrigued the audience, as we had interesting questions being raised regarding the project implementation process and especially on the smart technologies that have been selected for this particular project.

The main points raised during the discussion were:

  • how the implementation of these integrated technologies can be financially and environmentally sustainable in a developing country like Tunisia
  • the social impact of the technology’s implementation on the local level of employment
  • if these technologies were already employed in other countries
  • How do the technologies resist to rough sea conditions and the risk factor
