On the 14th and 15th of September 2021, the Salon de la Conchyliculture et des Cultures Marines 2021 was held in Vannes (France), which brought together some of the most important “stakeholders” of shellfish farming worldwide. Ernesto São Simão Lda. was invited to present, in the Innovation sector, the prototypes of ERGOMARINE systems.
ERGOMARINE's prototype solutions stand was certainly one of the most visited at this event, namely by potential customers, political figures, cooperatives, research centers and training centers.
The first participation of Ernesto São Simão Lda. in the Salon de la Conchyliculture et des Cultures Marines 2021 and the first international presentation of the ERGOMARINE project, and its first prototypes, contributed significantly to create awareness about ERGOMARINE solutions among some of the major world stakeholders in the field of oyster farming. It was also an opportunity to understand the needs, and opportunities, for the improvement of ERGOMARINE solutions.
In parallel to the visit to the Salon de la Conchyliculture et des Cultures Marines 2021, visits were held to some local oyster farmers.
