The AE2014 is now available here. The document summarises the reports of the AE2014 Parallel Sessions as received by the session chairs. Information is also provided on the opening ceremony and the show cooking event organised on the opening day and the winners of the AE2014 Poster Awards, as designated by the Session Chairs and Programme co-chairs, as well as the winners of the AquaTT and Aqualex Multimedia Consortium Lindsay Laird Award and the EAS Student Group Ibrahim Okumus Award.
During the AE2014 event in Donostia - San Sebastian, EAS and EATiP co-organised a special one-day event to address the production performance of the sea bass and sea bream sector by providing a forum for discussion of some of the important technical challenges that underlie production performance.
The event brought together our scientific and production knowledge to help better explain and understand the issues that may contribute to this position, so as to facilitate cooperation and actions to solve them. The full report of this succesful event is available by clicking on the cover photo.
EAS (Alistair Lane), FEAP (Courtney Hough) and University of Stirling (John Bostock) have recently completed a study requested by the European Parliament that provides an assessment of the impact, economic and ecological, of increased growth of the European aquaculture sector by identifying the challenges to growth and how these may be overcome.
