RECIRCULATING Aquaculture Systems (RAS) will be one of the themes of this year’s European Aquaculture Society (EAS) conference, to be held in Berlin in October.
Alongside the EAS Aquaculture Europe 2019 event, the Nordic Network on RAS (NordicRAS) will stage a workshop. This will be held on Monday, October 7, and on the morning of October 8, while the EAS RAS sessions will be scheduled afterwards to avoid a clash.
Both events, to take place in the Estrel Hotel and Congress Centre in Berlin, will provide a focus on RAS in a hosting country where it is a key strategical development objective, said the EAS.
The aims of the Nordic Network on RAS are to co-ordinate and strengthen research and development of recirculating aquaculture systems in Nordic countries.
The main theme of Aquaculture Europe 2019 is ‘Our Future – Growing from Water’. The conference will cover the full scope and diversity of European aquaculture.
The thematic plenary and technical parallel sessions will comprise submitted oral and poster presentations. Programme details and the plenary speakers are yet to be announced.
AE2019, from October 7-10, will also feature an international trade exhibition, industry forums, student sessions and activities, satellite workshops and updates on EU research.
