Since 4th to 14th May 2017, Jorge Domínguez and Mercedes Wangüemert travelled to China for meeting with our CUMARSUR partners from IOCAS. We shared information about methodologies for sea cucumber aquaculture and strategies for the next project calls. Also, we visited some sea cucumber companies to better understand the methodologies used there and to improve our biotechnology on aquaculture. It was a very interesting travel with valuable contacts. Thanks all our partners there, they were amazing and took care of us every minute, specially “Betty” from Sayanes Mar, S.L.
