International Conference on Aquaculture

Our goal is to appraise the aquaculture experts with latest developments and the newest technologies by gathering the professionals of aquaculture. We are going to host the "International Conference on Aquaculture" focusing on Integrated Aquaculture & Fisheries : Current Status and Future Opportunities, at Copenhagen, Denmark on 04 - 06, June, 2018. This is the mega exceptional platform to learn, discuss and explore your wisdom. Here you can meet all the researchers, professors, faculty, students, experts and many more and grow your connections across the world in your field. We desire to clench every individual of this field around the globe and arrange a senate and stake their knowledge and wisdom and learn the new technologies as well as the developments. Our image is to inflate the global expert's network to endorse Aquaculture.

International Conference on Aquaculture is the best opportunity for the global aquaculture stake holders to learn the new techniques and developments in the area already they are in practice from the delegates attending the conference. It is the ultimate conference for researchers and experts to explore the innovations, advancements by gathering together a distinctive and international blend of scientists, Practicing Aquaculture farmers, Aquaculture professionals, fishery science researchers, sea food societies, Educational institutes and Industries making the conference impeccable platform to share experience, foster collaboration across the global experts and professionals, and assess incipient technologies through the globe. This Aquaculture conference would offer eminent scientists with good fortune to existent their new wave researches in the gymnasium of Aquaculture and also emphasis on society's most scorching challenges.

Aquaculture Importance

About 567 aquatic species are currently farmed all over the world, representing a wealth of genetic diversity both within and among species. Aquaculture is practiced by both some of the poorest farmers in developing countries and by multinational companies. Eating fish is part of the cultural tradition of many people and in terms of health benefits, it has an excellent nutritional profile. It is a good source of protein, fatty acids, vitamins, minerals and essential micronutrients .Aquatic plants such as seaweed are also an important resource for aquaculture as they provide nutrition, livelihood and other important industrial uses.

Eighty per cent of current aquaculture production is derived from animals low in the food chain such as herbivorous, omnivorous fish and molluscs. Based on its dynamic performance over the last 30 years, and with fairly stable catches from capture fisheries, it is likely that the future growth of the fisheries sector will come mainly from aquaculture. The conference provides a forum for consultation and discussion on aquaculture It also advises on technical matters related to aquaculture & provides a wealth of information and tools on aquaculture development, issues and opportunities worldwide.

Scope of Aquaculture around the Globe

In terms of global distribution, 2012 saw China lead in aquaculture production worldwide, and it will continue to do so through 2030. While RAS represents only 6% of current production in China, the strong trend toward larger, more efficient systems is driving rapid change. Europe will also emerge as a large scale adopter of recirculating systems as demand for high value products such as seabass and salmon continues to increase. Research institutes such as the Denmark Technical University (DTU Aqua) and Nofima in Norway will push further commercialization of these systems to improve efficiency and environmental integrity.

Scope of Aquaculture in Denmark

The fishing industry in Denmark operates around the coastline, from western Jutland to Bornholm. While the overall contribution of the fisheries sector to the country's economy is only about 0.5 per cent, Denmark is ranked fifth in the world in exports of fish and fish products. Approximately 20,000 Danish people are employed in fishing, aquaculture, and related industries. The Danish fishing fleet is noted for its economic democracy the value of the catch is shared by everyone on the ship according to a pre-set scale, and this system unites the whole crew's interest in returning the largest possible catch. Fish waste is sold to Danish mink farmers. The mink pelts are sold at the world's largest fur auctions, held annually in Copenhagen. Denmark imports fish for this activity and its own fishing produce from the sea is exported.

Why to Attend ?

The main purpose of the conference is to highlight the potential of aquaculture production with the aim of supporting economic development and investment opportunities in Denmark. Aquatic biodiversity is a vital component to a country in the disguise of recreation, as food security and the national economic development of a nation. The fisheries sector has faced numerous issues resulting from human interventions in the form of overfishing, oil spills and pollution arising from wastage disposals in the marine habitats. The subject is of paramount importance to be addressed and the need for the message to be disseminated is crucial. The Conference will witness the participation of academicians, researchers, industry expects, policy makers and professionals in the fields of Fisheries and Aquaculture. The gathering will certainly pave way for necessary measures taken to overcome the problems faced by the sector and for precautions to counter issues that will arise in the future.
