The Aqua 2012 event, organised by the European (EAS) and World Aquaculture Societies (WAS), will take place in Prague from 1-5 September.

The theme this year will be Global Aquaculture: Securing our future and the event will focus on how science plays a fundamental role in the development of the global aquaculture industry.

During the event, there will be technical sessions on farmed fish, shellfish, algal and crustacean species across all climatic zones and continents.

A workshop will take place on 1 September, organised by the EAS Thematic Group on European Percid Fish Culture (EPFC). It will feature a keynote presentation and three thematic sessions on broadstock management and fingerling production, on-growing and nutrition and marketing and training.

Immediately following the trade show, there will be two special one day farm tours to allow delegates to visit farming activities in the Czech Republic – focusing firstly on pond aquaculture then on trout.
