Following on from the highly successful Aquaculture Europe 2002 conference "SeafarmingToday and Tomorrow" held in Trieste, Aquaculture Europe 2010 will bring back the focus on the future of marine aquaculture in Europe. As in 2002, the conference comes at a time when the European Commission has published its Communication on the strategy for the development of European aquaculture.
Although global aquaculture production shows annual increases of 5-10%, production growth in Europe is considerably lower. The challenge is to demonstrate sustainable development, while producing products that are competitive with those originating from other regions in the global market. Novel technology, but also new areas for production will need to be realized -making use of the great potentials of Europe as an advanced aquaculture production environment and as a leading consumer market.
As its theme suggests, the AE2010 conference will address many topics related to island, coastal and ocean aquaculture, but it will also cover the production of freshwater species. Parallel conference sessions include land-based systems, estuarine, coastal lagoon, coastal and offshore aquaculture and encompass many species from shellfish to fish to marine plants. AE2010 will also consider the specific issues related to production on Mediterranean islands and in Europe's Outermost Regions.
A trade exhibition, farmers' day, the EAS General Assembly and other events will complete the AE2010 event.
