Aquatic food is a major component of our food future, and Blue Food from all species in marine and freshwater production, is rightly in the spotlight for its potential to provide healthy, tasty and highly nutritious food for the planet.
Food systems transformation is a crucial requirement to mitigate climate impacts and offer enhanced food safety and security to billions. Aquaculture has demonstrated its resilience to change and is increasingly recognised for its environmental responsibility, reduced footprint and high efficiency in protein transformation and provision.
As our knowledge increases, so does our potential ability to offer Green Solutions throughout the aquaculture (and seafood) value chain. These solutions need not only to be financially feasible, they must also be based on the intelligent and sustainable utilisation of resources to maintain a measurable and limited footprint.
The AQUA events are co-organised by the European Aquaculture Society (EAS) and the World Aquaculture Society (WAS) and are held every six years. Past events were held in Nice (2000), Florence (2006), Prague (2012) and Montpellier (2018).
AQUA 2024 will take place from August 26-30 in the Danish capital of Copenhagen. It will comprise a scientific conference, trade exhibition, industry forums, workshops, student events and receptions. The event will highlight the latest aquaculture research and innovation to underpin continued growth of this exciting food production sector.
It will be a showcase for Denmark, and its innovation leadership in several key technologies crucial for future aquaculture, but also a meeting and exchange platform for experts from around the world. Sponsorship opportunities are numerous and include Gold and Silver Sponsorship, Session sponsors, Presidents Reception, Coffee breaks and various advertising possibilities.
The overarching them of AQUA 2024 is BLUE FOOD, GREEN SOLUTIONS and the scientific conference will include more than 60 sessions covering all aspects of aquaculture research.
