The seminar will be held from 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, June 28, at the Casino Enjoy Castro, Chiloe.
With the objective of efficiently transferring the new knowledge generated in the fields of research, development and innovation applied to the National Mytiliculture Industry is that the researchers of important Chilean institutions have joined efforts to organize and fund the “II Seminar of Applied Research to the Mytiliculture” which it will be held in the city of Castro, Chiloé.
According to Dr. Cristian Segura, project manager of the Instituto Tecnológico de la Mitilicultura (INTEMIT), “this pioneering initiative, seeks to create the spaces of open transfers, integrative and attractive to the community, without segregating with invitations for specific persons or payment of admission fees, so the same researchers from different localities of Chile, are funding the meeting through their own research projects.”
Another aspect that emphasizes Dr. Segura, and that says “makes to this event unique in its kind” it is that will allow to strengthen and decentralize the transfer of knowledge in applied research to the Mytiliculture industry, because it points directly to the work of those who operationalize this activity.
“That is why, this second version is performed again in the city of Castro, where is more than 80% of the production of Chilean Mussel, allowing a prosperous feedback between the productive-industrial and the scientific-academic worlds, and also improving the quality of the questions (hypothesis) that will support future research, “said the expert.
This year the seminar will be attended by leading national researchers, who will present in a simple and graphic form, the progress of its works and will emphasize its applicability to the called “Sustainability of the National Mytiliculture Industry”.
The institutions that organized and funded this meeting are INTEMIT, the Millennium Nucleus MUSELS, the Universidad de Concepción (UdeC), Instituto de Fomento Pesquero (IFOP), Universidad Austral de Chile (UACH), Universidad del Desarrollo (UDD), Universidad Católica del Norte (UCN), Universidad Santo Tomás (UST), the Subsecretaría de Pesca y Acuicultura (SUBPESCA) and the Corporación de Fomento Productivo (CORFO-PER).
The topics covered in the seminar will be varied and as a whole will aim to understand the variables or environmental and productive patterns in the inland sea of Chiloé, taking into account the local and global changes in the short and long term and considering the community as the key axis in sustainable balance of the mytiliculture activity. See program.
Parallel to the seminar, there will be a showroom with 10 stands for companies associated to this industry, with the aim of establishing business strategies of their services and products with the mussel farmers and researchers.

Millennium Nucleus (MUSELS) participation, in this time will be represented by three researchers who will show their work during the Thursday, July 28. The first is Dr. (c) Carlos Lara, who from 9:50 h will present “Using satellite platforms in Aquaculture ecosystems: the Case of the inland sea of Chiloe”. In the afternoon, from 14:30 h, Dr Nelson Lagos and Felipe Vazquez will present the talks “Biological, environmental and conceptual bases to assess the vulnerability of aquaculture Mytilus chilensis faced to the climate change projections” and ” Do consumers respond to the changes in the attributes of mussels due to climate change? “respectively.
