AQUI Impact once again above 1

The 2016 Impact Factor of our peer-reviewed scientific journal Aquaculture International was 1.095 in 2016, hence rising above 1 for the first time since 2012. We very much hope that you will continue to submit quality papers and reviews to the journal and especially arising from presentations made at our Aquaculture Europe events. EAS members have access to all recent papers published online, by logging in and then going to the menu item 'Members' and clicking on 'AQUI online' on the drop down sub-menu.

UPDATED abstract guidelines for our AE events

ae 2015 09 30 19 43 29 UTCAlthough the deadline for abstract submission for AE2017 has passed, we are still accepting abstracts, but please submit them online as soon as you can! Please also make sure that you follow our newly updated abstract guidelines on quality and also on format.
Abstracts need to reflect the quality of the science, in terms of its rigour, its contribution to knowledge and its impact to end-users. EAS strongly supports good knowledge management. Please therefore clearly show the impact and implications of your research for the sector and how you will/have communicated the knowledge derived for the potential users of your results. We recognise that ongoing analysis and interpretation of results may hinder early submission, and it is therefore possible to amend/update your abstract before a second (final print) deadline (usually early July). Naturally, updates and amendments can only be made to abstracts that have been submitted before the initial deadline, so this is not an opportunity to make a late initial submission Please kindly pass on this message to your colleagues and contacts that would still like to submit.

DSM and Evonik establish joint venture for omega-3 fatty acids from natural marine algae

Royal DSM and Evonik today announced their intention to establish a joint venture for omega-3 fatty acid products from natural marine algae for animal nutrition. This breakthrough innovation will, for the first time, enable the production of omega-3 fatty acids for animal nutrition without using fish oil from wild caught fish, a finite resource. Evonik and DSM’s alternative omega-3 source is the first to offer both EPA and DHA and will be aimed at initial applications in salmon aquaculture and pet food. The companies will together build a commercial-scale production facility in the United States. See film summary

ARRAINA: Understanding Biomarkers in Fish Nutrition

Arraina smallThis booklet is the final in a series of three technical booklets on the nutrition and feeding of fish farmed in Europe. The species focussed on by the ARRAINA project are: Atlantic salmon, rainbow trout, common carp, European sea bass and gilthead sea bream.

It provides a reliable set of biomarkers and associated methodologies to assess the nutritionally mediated effects on growth performance, metabolic homeostasis, stress responsiveness and health condition of fish which are fed new diet formulations from early life stages to completion of production cycle and sexual maturation.

IDREEM Final Report: Beyond Fish Monoculture

Over the last four years IDREEM (Increasing Industrial Resource Efficiency in European Mariculture) has supported fish-farmers across Europe, in developing different systems to introduce Integrated Multi-trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) in their farming facilities. IMTA has the potential to deliver greater productivity and reduced environmental impact for the European aquaculture industry and this is the principal message of the FINAL REPORT of the project, that finished in September.

FOOD 2030 - Aquatic Food Products & New Marine Value Chains

FOOD2030As part of the FOOD 2030 high-level conference held in Brussels in October, four parallel workshops were organised to provide ideas and needs towards building the future of EU research and innovation policy for Food and Nutrition Security. One of these - Aquatic food products and new marine value chains - was organised by the Marine Resources Unit of the Directorate General for Research and Innovation of the European Commission and looked at three thematic areas of aquaculture and fisheries: Underused fish biomass, new algae value chains for food and consumer acceptability of aquaculture products. Here are the presentations and report.
