On-demand sessions are now available

As we gear up for the World Trout Culture Summit next week (Oct. 18), we have on-demand sessions now available on our website.

The World Trout Culture Summit aims to unite trout culturists, scientists, farmers, technicians, suppliers, and other experts to drive innovation for this valuable species. Registration for this online event is $20 USD. All live sessions will be recorded and sent to registrants about 48 hours after the live broadcast.

Standard BioTools™ experts will help you design assays for any project, and our design technology refines sequences based on historical data to optimize detection of critical aquaculture pathogens such as aquatic herpes viruses, CCV, IHNV or EHNV. Our offerings extend to genotyping, gene expression and targeted sequencing primers compatible with real-time and NGS techniques.

He also mentioned that the government provides technical, financial, and social support for the sector, which has grown rapidly in the past decade.

He talks about Ontario’s opportunity to grow the sector sustainably with strong participation from local Indigenous partners.
