Nutrition in Aquaculture

The Scientific School will take place at Porto Conte Ricerche, Alghero (Italy), between July 9th and July 13th, 2018.
The School will have a practical slant, mainly directed to fish nutrition. To this aim, two main topics will be covered: farm management and aquafeed production. In more detail, training sessions will focus on feed formulation, production techniques and feed selection criteria, on the nutritional requirements of fish species mainly farmed in the Mediterranean region, on new farmed species, disease management, seafood quality, and environmental impact of aquaculture.
Alike good feeding practices represent a key factor for a successful farming business, also the sustainable growth of global aquaculture is strictly dependent on optimizing the aquafeed supply chain.  The Scientific School "Nutrition in Aquaculture" is directed to whom is already involved in aquaculture production and aims to improve farm managements skills, but also to students, researchers and to anyone considering to join the field in the near future. Noteworthy, the School will pass important information to feed producers that are still evaluating the opportunity to invest in aquafeed production.

Theoretical lessons, visits to production plants and integrated hands-on activities will guide the candidate through practical and theoretical knowledge of aquaculture practices.

To maximize student-teacher interactions, participatory lab experiences and to provide to every participant an education of the highest quality, the number of candidates is limited to 20.
