Join AE2020 parallel sessions on RAS farming

December 7, 2020

The European Aquaculture Society AE2020 event will take place online from April 13-15, 2021.

On April 12 (before the conference), EAS will organize a full day special event RAS@EAS. To complement the science presented in the parallel sessions of the AE conference, RAS@EAS aims to take a different approach - with emphasis on bringing together key figures from science and industry to focus on key issues, present the latest knowledge and share experience with different species and systems.

The first RAS@EAS event, Creating an Optimal Environment, and three panel discussions will address key questions:

  • Session 1: How do we best approach disinfection? Moderated by Jaap van Rijn of The Interuniversity Institute for Marine Sciences in Eilat (IUI), Israel and with an introductory presentation by Chris Good of The Conservation Fund Freshwater Institute, USA.
  • Session 2: Where are we going with monitoring & autonomy? Moderated by Øyvind Fylling-Jensen of Nofima, Norway and with an introductory presentation by Bård Skjelstad of ScaleAQ, Norway.
  • Session 3: What are the most challenging interactions between fish & RAS environment? Moderated by Damien Toner of Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM), Ireland and with an introductory presentation by Jelena Kolarevic of UiT The Arctic University of Norway/ Nofima, Norway.
