2010 Conference Programme
Fish Farm Visit
Final sessions at the 2010 conference
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.
Croatia has a tradition of both freshwater and marine aquaculture; the major species produced are tuna, seabass and seabream, carp, rainbow trout and mussels. Mariculture in Croatia intensified in the early 80's and the strategic goal is to massively increase the production of cultivated fish and molluscs in the immediate future, whilst at the same time improving the competitiveness in the European market. Croatia is already leading the way in the very complex issue of spatial coastal planning and can boast being one of the first countries to have reached an agreement between the ministries of fisheries, tourism and environment.To download the booking form click here – early bird 20% discount is available until 16 April 2010!
