12/02/2016: Edinburgh to host Aquaculture Europe 2016
Aquaculture Europe 2016 will take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) from September 20-23. AE2016 is organised by the European Aquaculture Society with the cooperation and support of Marine Scotland, part of the Scottish Government, and The Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland. The event is Gold Sponsored by Biomar.

The event theme 'Food for thought' means something to think about, something to be seriously considered and something that provides mental stimulation and nourishment.
Aquaculture in Europe has plateaued resulting in overall output remaining more or less constant in volume since 2000. AE2016 will present the latest science to support further development, and industry panels will discuss key opportunities. It will also identify areas to encourage further sustainable growth in aquaculture. The morning plenary sessions will address different aspects of the event theme in a novel way.

Parallel sessions
AE2016 has something for everyone, with a broad proposed list of parallel sessions:

  • New advances in trout farming
  • Diversification in aquaculture production
  • Diversify: exploring the biological and socio-economic potential of new/emerging candidate fish species for expansion of the european aquaculture industry
