Mariculture 2010

CROATIA - The third Offshore Mariculture Conference entitled Exploring the progress and prospects for offshore mariculture in European and international waters, will be held at the Hilton Imperial Hotel, Dubrovnik, Croatia from 16-18 June 2010.

As in previous years, the two day technical conference will be followed by a third day dedicated to a visit to a fish farm which, this year, will be a Seabass and Seabream farm.

The Conference is supported by the European Aquaculture Society, the European Aquaculture Technology Innovation Platform, the Federation of European Aquaculture Producers, the Global Aquaculture Alliance, the Danish Aquaculture Association and HGK, Grupacija akvakulture, the aquaculture affiliation of the Croatian Chamber of Economy and member of FEAP.

The programme will include presentations on policy and research updates (EATiP, FAO and NOAA), practical offshore farming operations, spatial planning and monitoring, spotlight on Croatia and case studies from Croatian and international fish farmers.

The conference is aimed at farming companies, research organisations and suppliers looking to update themselves on the latest policies, products, research and case studies within the fin/shell fish and seaweed offshore farming industries. The specific focus on Croatia will enable Government officials from farming nations to learn how they can adapt Croatia's successful spatial planning policy into their own Ministries of Fisheries/Environment and Tourism. International farming companies and suppliers looking to enter/invest in the Croatian market will also be in attendance.
