About Aquaculture Europe 2016
This year’s theme for Aquaculture Europe is “Food for thought”. It means something to think about, something to be seriously considered and something that provides mental stimulation and nourishment. The Aquaculture Europe 2016 will present the latest science to support further development and industry panels will discuss key opportunities and identify areas to encourage further sustainable growth in aquaculture. Aquaculture Europe 2016 is organised by the European Aquaculture society with the cooperation and support of Marine Scotland, part of the Scottish Government, and The Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland.
The session chairs of the conference are now building their sessions from the abstracts received, however EAS is still accepting abstracts so if you would like an oral presentation, please submit as soon as you can at www.easoline.org.
