Aquaculture Canada 2012
Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island
May 27th - May 30th 2012
from the President of the Aquaculture Association of Canada
On behalf of the Aquaculture Association of Canada and our conference partners, I invite you to join us at Aquaculture CanadaOM 2012, “New Frontiers: Bridging Technology and Economic Growth” in Charlottetown, PEI, May 27th-30th, 2012. Charlottetown is many things: a premier tourism and golfing destination and the home of Confederation (or the birthplace of Canada).
However, it is also an emerging biotech hub, the home of the Atlantic Veterinary College – an internationally recognized center of fish health research excellence and technology development – and, as the capital of Prince Edward Island, it is in the seat of Canada’s second largest segment of the aquaculture industry, blue mussel farming.
As if those weren’t reasons enough to come to Aquaculture CanadaOM 2012, this edition of the conference promises to build on our tradition of providing Canada’s most comprehensive agenda of aquaculture science and technology presentations, thought-provoking keynote and plenary speakers, sessions with particular appeal to industry managers and producers, and, as always, a social agenda featuring the annual Joe Brown Student BBQ and Silent Auction, our Gala Banquet, and other items which we will announce in future updates.
The preliminary program will give you a good flavour of the breadth of topics related to the aquaculture sector which will be discussed. Owing to the conference’s location in 2012, a particular focus will be placed on fish health R&D (AVC and VetHealth Global sessions) and advances in shellfish aquaculture (in cooperation with the PEI Aquaculture Alliance).
Don’t miss this once-a-year premier networking and technology and scientific exchange opportunity!
See you in Charlottetown in 2012!
