Following on from the successful meetings in Keele (2014) and Stirling (2016), the Marine Institute in Ireland is delighted to host the third meeting at the Connacht Hotel, Galway on 11 – 12th September 2018. The theme of this meeting is “connecting academia with industry for improved aquatic animal health”. The conference will focus on the latest scientific advances and how this can be applied to the crustacean, molluscan and finfish aquaculture industries to improve animal health.

Registration for this meeting has now been extended until Friday 3rd August 2018. Registration for this meeting is €100 for EAFP members and €120 for non-members.

Accommodation is not covered; however Galway also offers a range of additional accommodation.

A special session for early stage researchers (post graduate, PhD students) will also take place with presentations of 5 to 10 minutes allowed.
