Aquaculture Europe 2007 deadlines approaching


Deadlines for submitting an abstract for Aquaculture Europe 2007 conference is fast approaching. You can still submit your abstract directly online here. Guidelines can be found on the same web pages.

Aquaculture Europe 2007 encourages the submission of high quality oral and poster presentations.


The event will include an aquaculture conference, an industry forum and an exhibition, jointly organized by the European Aquaculture Society (EAS) and Eurasia Trade Fairs and will take place in Istanbul, Turkey, from October 24-27, 2007.


The conference theme "Competing claims" addresses the various levels of competition that aquaculture faces at present, but upon which its future development will depend.


"Claims" exist from other stakeholders with respect to physical space, investment and other finances, resources (e.g. for feed raw materials and water resources), technology and others. The importance of the theme is recognized by the European Commission, who is planning a high-profile presence at Aquaculture Europe 2007, with a special EU session, a large Commission stand in the exhibition and the presence of the EU Commissioner for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs, Mr. Joe Borg.


The thematic sessions will take place each morning. They address the principal areas of the overall conference theme. International speakers from the sector will present these thematic sessions, that open the debate and pave the way for the parallel, technical sessions of contributed presentations.


Thematic plenary sessions will address:

-How does aquaculture interact with biodiversity?.

-All human activities affect our environment what is acceptable in the case of sustainable aquaculture?.

-Does aquaculture make efficient & sustainable use of limited issues.

-How will aquaculture find the space to develop?.

-How to address consumer expectations and concerns?
