International Gill Health Conference to be held in October
Monday, June 28, 2021
The Sustainable Aquaculture Innovation Centre (SAIC) announced the return of the International Gill Health Conference, which will see the aquaculture sector combine its expertise and knowledge to tackle one of the sector’s biggest challenges.
Having been postponed during the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, the two-day conference will now take place online from October 26-27, 2021. The event will welcome speakers and delegates from around the globe including the UK, Canada, Australia, South America and Europe.
Gill health has become a priority area for the aquaculture sector, with an ever-changing natural environment and the impact of climate change reinforcing the need for a greater understanding of gill disease, along with its prevention and treatment. The virtual conference aims to encourage knowledge sharing between the sector’s experts, including valuable research and development initiatives.
The Gill Health Initiative was formed by an international steering committee in 2012 and has since become a renowned bi-annual event attended by hundreds of researchers and professionals involved in the production of Atlantic salmon and its associated supply chains. The event is supported by the Norwegian Seafood Research Fund (FHF) and is free to attend with registration opening soon.
