08/08/2014: Keynote speaker from Plymouth University for two-day conference Aquatic China in Beijing

He will then also be among the senior delegates at VIV China 2014, which is supported by the Dutch government and is one of the biggest global gatherings of researchers, suppliers and buyers in the international aquafeed industry.

China is the biggest global producer in aquaculture, a field which includes fish and shellfish farming and is presently the fastest growing method of food production.
Professor Davies said:
“The aquaculture industry is worth around $130billion, and Asia is responsible for around 70 per cent of global fish production. From that, China farms more fish than all the other countries put together, so these two conferences will attract the leading figures in the field worldwide. To be invited to attend is a demonstration of our standing in global aquaculture research, and a recognition that the work of my team here in Plymouth is making a difference across the world.”
Professor Davies has been one of the leading figures in aquaculture since joining Plymouth University almost 30 years ago, and is the Editor-in-Chief of International Aquafeed, the leading trade magazine for the fish feeding and aquatic animal health sector.
