27/09/2016: Aquaculture Europe 2016 provides plenty of 'Food for Thought'

The great and the good of the Aquaculture world descended on the Scottish capital last week as the European Aquaculture Society celebrated its 40th birthday.

“Food for thought” means something to think about, something to be seriously considered and something that provides mental stimulation and nourishment.

In recent years, aquaculture in Europe has plateaued; resulting in overall output remaining more or less constant in volume since 2000. So with this in mind, it's is now more important than ever for the industry to get together and share one of the most crucial collective tool that they have at their disposal - their collective pool of knowledge. 

And share they did. Set in some of the EICC's purpose built conference rooms, hundreds of academics and industry professionals orchestrated a very elaborate network of conferences that covered almost every aspect of aquaculture; whilst down in the main conference room an impressive assortment of companies and organisations plied their trade.

Aquaculture Europe 2016, was 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.
Brought to the Aquaculture world with the very able assistance of 'Gold Sponsor" Biomar, Aquaculture Europe 2016 presented the latest science to support further development; with industry panels also discussing key opportunities and  areas where further sustainable growth in aquaculture should be encouraged. The morning plenary sessions also addressed the many different aspects of the event's theme in a novel and interesting way.

Aquaculture Europe 2017 will be held in the Croatian capital Zagreb next year where the theme will be 'Cooperation for Growth' - see you there!
