Recommended Conferences for Aquaculture


OMICS International has 512 Open Access Articles, 558 Conference Proceedings, 4 Upcoming Conferences, 174 symposiums related to Aqua.

Aquaculture in other ways is also known as aqua farming. Aquaculture includes farming of Fish, shrimps, aquatic plants, molluscs etc. Farming is a process followed to enhance production, such as regular stocking, feeding, protection from predators, etc. Aquaculture is done by cultivating freshwater and saltwater populations under controlled conditions, and can be contrasted with commercial, which is the harvesting of wild fish. When aqua culture is practiced under marine conditions it is known as Mari culture. Fish farming is the most common form of aqua farming which involves in raising fish in ponds, tanks etc. Fish farming is usually done for food. The important species which are used in fish farming are carp, salmon, tilapia and cat fish. Carp are the dominant fish in aquaculture. Around 20 conferences are organized all over the world on aquaculture, and many workshops and symposia’s are conducted all over the globe which will help to increase the technical knowledge and to understand the importance of global, national, regional and local issues and developments related to sea food safety and human health. The conferences are open for food technologists, dieticians, nutritionists, sea food buyers, distributors, retailers etc. However they are also open of for business people who are planning to invest in aquaculture and journalists too. The workshops will provide information on current issues, developments and trends for aqua farming, aquaculture industries and products.

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events every year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more Scientific Societies and Publishes 700+ Open Access Journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members. The Conference Series website will provide you list and details about the conferences organized across the globe.

Scope and Importance: 
Since the aquatic hitchhiker issue first gained notoriety in the Great Lakes region, initial efforts to reduce the continued spread were centered in that area. However, subsequent research has indicated that aquatic nuisance species are a problem for many ports and inland waterways of the U.S. In 1996, Congress acted upon these finding and re-authorized the original federal legislation by enacting the National Invasive Species Act. This law expanded the scope of the issue beyond the Great Lakes and required the Coast Guard to establish national voluntary ballast water guidelines. In July of 1999, the National Voluntary Guidelines were implemented for all waters of the United States. As the issue has emerged and has become better understood by resource professionals, the impacts across are becoming more widely known. As a result, various regions have been identified as areas that are highly susceptible to aquatic hitchhikers. San Francisco Bay, a center of extensive international trade, hosts more than 210 introduced aquatic species. For nearly 150 years, this highly disturbed and vulnerable ecosystem has been exposed to continuous, large-scale introduction of non-native species through activities associated with commercial shipping and oyster farming. The importation of commercial oysters has allowed non-native species to hitchhike on the shells of oysters and packing materials shipped from the eastern U.S. coast and Japan. In the last decade, a new species has arrived about every 12 weeks.

In USA as aquaculture species or the farming of aquatic organisms continues to expand and intensify provisions for waste management become very important issues for both producers and environmental regulatory officials. There are a number of types of aquaculture and their environmental impacts are highly varied. For example intensive culture of finfish in tanks or netpens requires the addition of prepared feeds, with attendant waste management problems, but in Europe culture of filter feeding bivalve mollusks or seaweeds may actually cleanse or remove nutrients from effluent waters. A proper waste management plan is needed to maintain the legality, profitability and environmental soundness of any aquaculture facility. Middle East Typical wastes from an aquaculture facility may include feces and nutrients from excretion by aquatic animals, as well as uneaten feeds and chemicals such as therapeutant and cleanser residues. Aquaculture species involves in a significant discharge of waste into lakes, rivers, estuaries or any other receiving waters it may cause adverse environmental impacts. In order to prevent these adverse impacts from occurring, regulations on discharges into receiving waters have been or are in the process of being established. In Asia most cases, aquaculture facilities are not given permits unless there is a waste management plan that meets applicable local, state and federal environmental regulations. The intent of this fact sheet is to: a) describe the waste effluents produced by aquaculture facilities, b) to serve as a guide for water quality regulators and aqua culturists interested in discharge permitting, and c) to provide information for using dilution models in freshwater and coastal water bodies.
