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.
Its aims are to increase the participation of young persons in EAS activities, gather and exchange information related to the diverse fields of research, share work experiences in the sector and to voice student and young persons’ concerns.
Until 2018, the EAS_SG had its own Board and you can see the list of Past Presidents below. But now, EAS_SG has a permanent representative (and full Board member) on the EAS Board of Directors. For 2022-2024, this is Mariana Ferreira from Portugal.
Mariana Ferreira, Student Representative
- FREE membership for students. Membership is valid for 12 months - scan and send a copy of your student card to eas at aquaeas.eu
- Map of Universities and research centres involved in aquaculture in Europe is available here
The EAS-SG Board has therefore now been replaced by our NATIONAL COORDINATORS If you are interested in promoting EAS in general and the EAS-SG in particular in your country, and it is not on the list here, then drop us an e-mail.
EAS-SG has a strong and growing presence on social media - thanks to our Social Media Coordinator, Ana Visković. You can follow them on the icons below.
Each year, at our Aquaculture Europe events, the EAS-SG is very active in the organisation of the event and holds its own workshop and (now famous) student reception.
But to benefit clearly from the group, it's much better to join EAS.
The EAS-SG network and national coordinators can also help you with aquaculture-related questions, queries or contacts, but this service is only available to EAS Student Members.
We also have an EAS Mentoring Program!
SPAROS is a spin-off company of the Centre of Marine Sciences of Algarve (CCMAR) / University of Algarve, devoted to innovate in the development of new products and processes for fish feeding and nutrition.
