Aquaculture Europe 2014 will take place at the Congress Centre (Kursaal), Donostia, San Sebastián, Spain, October 14-17, 2014. The focus of the Aquaculture Europe theme for 2014 will be on products rather than production, and the three thematic plenary presentations will focus on this.
The organizers say that in aquaculture, we can add value to our products, through processing, transformation and packaging. We can also add value during the production cycle, by management of its various components, so as to increase overall productivity. We can add value to research, by producing ‘knowledge products’ that can be used by others – for incremental knowledge advancement; for developing innovation or for supporting policy. We can add overall value in research management by harmonisation in programming; by better use of infrastructure and by nurturing our human resources. Finally, we can add value to societal, environmental and natural resources, by generating new ‘economic activity products’ based on environmental services, or diversifying existing ones. Thus the focus for 2014.
