Denmark’s environment and food minister has inaugurated a forum to secure the supply of Danish pumps, filters, feed technology and equipment to the Malaysian aquaculture sector.
The Danish-Malay forum, launched by Esben Lunde Larsen, will aim to strengthen the presence of Danish companies in Southeast Asia, as it looks to ramp up exports to Malaysia — a country looking to make its aquaculture industry more sustainable.
“Danish companies can help Malaysia to use less water and medicine and use fewer chemicals in production,” said Larsen on Apr. 15.
“Malaysia must move from traditional earthen ponds to more modern technology, where the water is recycled and where optimum conditions for fish and the environment, and thus efficient production is paramount.”
