Mrs Nicky Barnes attended the 2010 Aquaculture Europe Conference and Exhibition in Porto, Portugal, that was organised by European Aquaculture Society and hosted by CIMAR. Along with Professor Simon Davies of Plymouth Univeristy and Editor of International Aquafeed, Mrs Barnes met some members of the magazine's Editorial Advisory Panel and other key people who also attended the conference.
Mrs Barnes met with Anton Immink from Sterling University, Scotland, who is currently working on the program Sustaining Ethical Aquaculture Trade (SEAT). She also met one of the most important people in fish nutrition, Professor John Halver, who is known as the 'father of fish nutrition' and still working at the age of 88. Over 1000 delegates attended the conference which included a small exhibition of some 50 trade stands.
During the exhibition Mrs Barnes distributed copies of the latest edition of International Aquafeed and gave out leaflets for a new publication - due out in 2011 - that focuses on Aquaculture Health and Disease Management. Mrs Barnes said that she had enjoyed the exhibition and meeting the diverse range of industry representatives and leaders.
Mrs Tuti Tan also attended the 2010 Aquaculture Europe Conference and Exhibition. Mrs Tan was there to promote and market Perendale's aquaculture publication, International Aquafeed.
Meeting with the conference organisers was important she said in ensuring the magazine got to the right people. The conference also provided Mrs Tan with an opportunity to meet potential subscribers and students, who were an important resource for the future of the industry.
