AQUA 2012: Science Responds to Industry Needs

08 February 2012

CZECH REPUBLIC - As with all the events organised by the European and World Aquaculture Societies, our AQUA 2012 event in Prague in September will focus on how science plays a fundamental role in the development of the global aquaculture industry.

The AQUA 2012 theme, Global Aquaculture: Securing Our Future, has obvious implications in global and regional food security and aquaculture trade, placing aquaculture products in the global fisheries market. It also refers to economic and environmental sustainability and the image of aquaculture activities.

As the latest AQUA 2012 advertisement depicts, the event will be a truly global one, including technical sessions that cover farmed fish, shellfish, algal and crustacean species from all climatic zones and all continents.

Exhibitors from around the world will therefore be present in the AQUA 2012 trade exhibition to display their latest products and services to the sector and several special events are being organised to facilitate communication between stakeholders – and especially between science and industry – through the Farmers’ Days and through other special and additional events.

The AQUA 2012 Gold Sponsor, Biomar, the EAS Premium Sponsor MSD Animal Health and the WAS Premium Sponsor, Novus will lead a short aquaculture-industry forum that will follow the Farmers’ Day, allowing them to give their inputs on the global market within the scope of the AQUA 2012 theme. This short forum will end with a special celebration, marking the 50th anniversary of Biomar.
