AQUA 2018 will 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. AQUA 2018 will take place from August 25-29 in the beautiful French city of Montpellier and will comprise a scientific conference, trade exhibition, industry forums, workshops, student events and receptions. The event will highlight the latest aquaculture research and innovation to underpin continued growth of this exciting food production sector. The AQUA events are co-organised by the European Aquaculture Society (EAS) and the World Aquaculture Society (WAS) and are held every six years. Past events were held in Nice (2000), Florence (2006) and Prague (2012).
It is a global aquaculture event and participation is expected from more than sixty countries.
