Nofima to organise 2012 aqua symposium

Nofima and the four other host institutions are in preparation to host a conference on fish nutrition and feed scheduled for 2012. More than 500 researchers from around the globe are expected to attend the conference in Molde, Norway, to share their latest findings in the field.

"It will be exciting for us to arrange such a large and prestigious conference," says Ståle Refstie of Nofima/APC, chair of the Norwegian organizing committee. Nofima applied to host the event along with the Aquaculture Protein Centre (APC), the National Institute of Nutrition and Seafood Research (NIFES), the Norwegian School of Veterinary Science (NVH) and the Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB).

This summer the international conference committee selected these Norwegian research institutions to arrange the 15th consecutive "International Symposium on Fish Nutrition and Feeding" (ISFNF). Several sponsors from trade and industry have also expressed their interest in helping to support the conference.

The ISFNF is held every other year in various locations throughout the world. This summer the conference took place in Florianópolis, Brazil, and Beijing will serve as host city in 2010. The conference is considered to be the most important meeting place for researchers and companies with an R&D focus in the area of fish feed and feeding.
