AQUA 2018 in Montpellier, France

Partners AquaBioTech Group (Malta) and OxyGuard (Denmark) exhibited on AQUA 2018 from 25 to 29 August in Montpellier, France. Both partners received much attention, especially from fish farmers, for their solutions for sustainable aquaculture as applied in our project: RAS recirculating aquaculture system and advanced sensor and monitoring systems.

As international, multi-faceted event, AQUA 2018 gathered a scientific conference, trade exhibition, industry forums, workshops, student events and receptions and celebrated the facts that aquaculture is one of the most important food production industries in the world, the most efficient producer of high quality food, contributor to global health and wealth, and last but not least, that that aquaculture respects the environment, creates employment and offers significant investment opportunities. AQUA 2018 highlighted the latest aquaculture research and innovation to underpin continued growth of this exciting food production sector.

The AQUA events are co-organised by the European Aquaculture Society (EAS) and the World Aquaculture Society (WAS) and are held every six years. Past events were held in Nice (2000), Florence (2006) and Prague (2012).
