|Provisional programme for AquaNor Forum available now. 2007-06-06|
The AQUA NOR FORUM 2007 is the first of a new type of event, organised by the European Aquaculture Society (EAS) every second AQUA NOR, that provides a forum for science, industry, consumers and policy makers to review developments in the aquaculture sector and to discuss the key issues that affect those developments. EAS will organise its Aquaculture Europe International conference in Trondheim every four years, starting from 2009.
AQUA NOR FORUM 2007 will take place at the Trondheim Spektrum, Norway, on August 15-16 and within Aqua Nor 2007. The event is organised by the EAS in cooperation with the Nor Fishing Foundation and SINTEF Fisheries and Aquaculture. AQUA NOR FORUM 2007 will address the issue of welfare as a driver for technological development in aquaculture. The forum will be divided into three sessions, which look at different "housing situations" (structures used for the production of aquatic animals) and the interaction between different stakeholders in designing production systems. The three sessions are brought together in a press conference that summarises discussions and recommends future action.
