Founded in May 2005 in Norway, the European Aquaculture Society - Student Group (EAS-SG) is developing into one of the major aquaculture student organizations. EAS-SG is a group bringing together students in aquaculture and related fields from more than 20 countries.

EAS-SG aims to provide an easy way of making contact and communicating with others who share similar (research) interests. EAS-SG also aims to provide comprehensive searchable listings of for instance student mobility opportunities and universities and courses in the field of aquatic sciences. In addition:

* Create a personal profile page

* Establish a network of students who share your interests

* Initiate discussions and exchange useful tips

* Find career information relevant to you (jobs, MSc/PhD programs and funding opportunities)

 The 2016/17 EAS-SG Board consists of the following members:
