Welcome to the FISH NUTRITION Workshop hosted by the Aquaculture & Fisheries group at Wageningen University & Research. This website provides information and registration opportunities.

The Wageningen Fish Nutrition workshop is organized in October 2024 as the second of a series of annual Wageningen workshops on fish nutrition. As part of these workshops, leading experts in the field will give one-hour presentations, taking time to thoroughly introduce each subject. This year’s (2024) subject is Fish Nutrition: Impacts on Gut Functioning and Health.

The workshop includes two afternoons of hands-on practicals on fish feed formulation and fish microbiome analysis. Further, participants are asked to send an abstract of their research plans and to present a poster, with the best one awarded the poster prize. The official workshop language is English.

Objectives

The objective of the present workshop is to provide participants with advanced knowledge on fish nutrition, focusing on gut physiology and health-related aspects, as well as nutritional impacts on gut functioning. During the workshop we will discuss the latest advances in fish nutrient requirements and sustainable sources, connecting them to fish physiology and health. The use of novel tools in fish nutrition and the implication of microbiota and changes thereof will also be further discussed.

Target Group

The level of the workshop is targeting academic and company researchers as well as management staffin the aquaculture industry. We more than welcome PhD students, who have a reduced registration fee.
