AQUA 2018 is co-organized by the European Aquaculture Society (EAS) and the World Aquaculture Society (WAS) and will take place in Montpellier, France on August 25 – 29, 2018. It will comprise a scientific conference, trade exhibition, industry forums, workshops, student events and receptions. The GCP project Nutritious-system pond faring in Vietnam will be present in different sessions.
AQUA events are held every six years to celebrate the fact that aquaculture is one of the most important food production industries in the world. Aquaculture is the most efficient producer of high quality food and contributes to global health and wealth. Aquaculture respects the environment, creates employment and offers significant investment opportunities. Past events were held in Nice (2000), Florence (2006) and Prague (2012).
AQUA 2018 will highlight the latest aquaculture research and innovation to underpin continued growth of this exciting food production sector. It is a global aquaculture event and participation is expected from more than sixty countries. AQUA 2018 will draw on Europe and Africa, Canada, USA and Latin America as well as the Middle East and Asia Pacific region and the rest of the world to create one of the largest aquaculture trade shows in the world.
