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
"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.
