AQUA 2024 changes venue to Copenhagen
Previously scheduled in Stavanger, Norway in June, AQUA 2024 will take place from August 25-29, 2024 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The boards of directors of the European Aquaculture Society and the World Aquaculture Society have changed the location and date for the AQUA 2024 event. Previously scheduled in Stavanger, Norway in June, AQUA 2024 will take place from August 25-29, 2024 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The event will comprise a scientific conference, trade exhibition, industry forums, workshops, student events and receptions. It will highlight the latest aquaculture research and innovation to underpin the continued growth of this exciting food production sector. It will be a showcase for Denmark and its innovation leadership in several key technologies crucial for future aquaculture, but also a meeting and exchange platform for experts from around the world. The theme of AQUA 2024 is Blue food, green solutions.
Food systems transformation is a crucial requirement to mitigate climate impacts and offer enhanced food safety and security to billions. Aquaculture has demonstrated its resilience to change and is increasingly recognized for its environmental responsibility, reduced footprint and high efficiency in protein transformation and provision. As our knowledge increases, so does our potential ability to offer green solutions throughout the aquaculture (and seafood) value chain. These solutions need not only to be financially feasible but must also be based on the intelligent and sustainable utilization of resources to maintain a measurable and limited footprint. Blue food production must grow. Green solutions will help it to do so.
AQUA 2024 is co-organized by the European Aquaculture Society (EAS) and the World Aquaculture Society (WAS) and is held every six years. Past events were held in Nice (2000), Florence (2006), Prague (2012) and Montpellier (2018).
