Aquaculture Europe 2022 

The European event will take place in Rimini, Italy from September 27-30, 2022 under the theme Innovative solutions in a changing world. Traditional and emerging blue economy sectors in the Adriatic, Mediterranean and water bodies throughout Europe are expected to grow and expand over the next few years and sustainably contribute to food production, biofuel and clean energy.  Nevertheless, there is clear evidence that within ten years, the coastal and marine environments will change for sea acidification and warming, sea-level rise and coastal erosion and all water bodies will be affected by flooding, eutrophication and pollution, with important effects on ecosystem services, fish and shellfish stocks and food security. How aquaculture is facing these challenges, and the solutions put in place to develop a sustainable, responsible and productive and climate-neutral European aquaculture sector for key marine and freshwater fish, shellfish and algal species are the main themes for AE2022 event in Rimini.

The AE2022 parallel sessions will cover the full scope of European aquaculture scientific disciplines and species and will comprise submitted oral and poster presentations. AE2022 will also host an international trade exhibition, industry forum, student sessions and activities, satellite workshops and updates on EU research.
