Aquafeeds booth at Aquaculture UK
Aqualife and the University of Stirling's Institute of Aquaculture are organising a mini-conference on salmon vaccination on June 11, 2014 in Stirling, Scotland.

With just two weeks notice the organisers have informed IAF that its the first time for several years that the vaccination sector in aquaculture is coming together to discuss standards and a way forward for a more co-ordinaries approach for salmon.
Robert Wittmann, operations manager at Aqualife says companies leading in the field, such as Pharmaq, MSD, Salmon Vaccine, Marine Harvest and Novartis, to name a few, have registered their interest in participating.
"There is no standard for vaccination procedures, but getting it wrong can have major negative consequences for fish welfare and the quality of the end product," say Mr Wittmann.
Speakers representing the main producers of salmon vaccines, farming companies, fish health professionals and vaccination companies will lead the discussion on the issue of Salmon Vaccination - Setting the Standards.
Please email or speak directly to Sally on +44 1786849141 to register.
