Fish Nutrition and Health Workshop, October 17-21, 2021

Fish Nutrition: Interaction with Aquaculture system and Water Quality

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

More information and the preliminary programme will follow soon.

The Wageningen Fish Nutrition workshop will be organized for the first time in October 2021 as the first of a series of annual 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 (2021) subject is Fish Nutrition: Interaction with Aquaculture system and Water Quality.

The workshop includes two afternoons with a choice between hands-on practicals on fish feed formulation or water quality management, largely related to recirculating aquaculture systems. 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 different forms of aquaculture systems and related aspects of water quality. During the workshop we will discuss the latest advances in fish nutrient requirements and sustainable sources, connecting them to water quality management, using feed formulations. 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 staff in the aquaculture industry.
We more than welcome
PhD students, who have a reduced registration fee.
