Event Name: Current Concepts in Aquaculture and Ornamental Fish Practice

Târgu Mureș, Transylvania, Romania
September 12, 2017 - September 14, 2017


This conference will provide a framework for discussion and reflection on the role of veterinarians in continuing to foster the sustainable development of worldwide aquaculture and ornamental fish industries, with a special focus on development and options in the Eastern Europe region. The event will be of relevance to veterinarians, veterinary technicians and students, as well as aquaculture policy makers (i.e. government officials, veterinary school personnel, national or regional veterinary professional associations) fish farmers/owners involved in commercial aquaculture and ornamental fish industries, non-veterinary aquatic animal health personnel, professionals involved in seafood safety control, and other aquatic animal health stakeholders. Conference attendees will likely have diverse backgrounds of experience and expertise in aquatic animal medicine, so presentations may be broadly or specifically applicable to a wide range of topics that are relevant to the development of aquaculture in Eastern Europe, as well as in other parts of the world. The WAVMA Conference & Annual General Meeting, 2017, aims to increase awareness on the importance of ensuring sustainable seafood production and food security through aquaculture in Romania and other neighbouring countries, consistent with a variety of regional and global initiatives and objectives. It will also emphasize important developments in global aquatic veterinary education and practice.
