During the day of October 20th and with an audience of more than 150 people, represented by mussel farmers, authorities and the academy, the “VIII SEMINAR ON RESEARCH APPLIED TO MUTTILULTURE – SIAM 2022” was held, organized by Mussel Farming Technology Institute (Intemit), Chilean Mussel Farmers Association (AmiChile) and Regional Strategic Program (PER) for Los Lagos Corfo Mussel Farming Industry.
Occasion in which one of the nine exhibitors from different prestigious national institutions in terms of the development of science applied to aquaculture and in particular to mussel farming, was Dr. Cristián Segura Rivera from IFOP Fisheries Development Institute, he spoke about “Larval interactive report and mussel seed collection for mussel farmers.” Opportunity in which the researcher disseminated the interactive platform available on our institutional website, where the main results of the Mytilid Larval Monitoring Program are reported, in POWER BI format. The seminar was held entirely remotely, by videoconference on the Zoom platform.
According to Dr. Segura from IFOP “In this seminar we showa new digital interactive platform attributes which are based on Mytilid Seed Program Larval Monitoring and Collection led by IFOP. In this platform users will be able to interact directly and from any device (computer or cell phone), with an executive report that shows the results of analysis associated with larval development and abundance of the last 4 years, in different geographical areas (12 areas) located in the inland sea of the Los Lagos region, as well as on accumulated collection of seeds in Yates and Castro areas. Our challenge is that this instrument can support the authorities in making regulatory decisions, but we also hope to contribute with information for an efficient and sustainable collection of mussels seeds”.
According to Intemit and AmiChile general manager Yohana González, “the activity’s objective was to efficiently transfer new knowledge generated in research fields, development and innovation applied to national mussel farming industry. Privileging open, inclusive and attractive transfer spaces for the community. Allowing research and technology to be concepts known by most people, especially by those who make up our field and who can apply it in the development of their tasks”.
