PULSUS brings in a new spin on conferences by presenting the latest scientific improvements in your field. Listen to motivating keynotes from thought leaders, or rub elbows with pioneers across the globe. Madrid is all set for an amazing event as PULSUS proudly presents the “World Congress on Recent Advances in Aquaculture Research & Fisheries” slated on June 10-11, 2019 at Dublin, Ireland. The theme of the conference is “Sustainable Aquaculture & Fishery”.
Fisheries and aquaculture is an essential resources for food, nutrition, income and employment for billions of people all over the globe. Studies State that fish accounted for about 17% of the world population’s intake of animal protein and 6.7% of all protein intake. In addition, fish provided more than 3.1 billion humans with almost 20% of their average per capita intake of animal protein. It is an important source of essential fats (e.g. long-chain omega-3 fatty acids), vitamins (D, A and B) and minerals (including calcium, iodine, zinc, iron and selenium), particularly if eaten whole. World aquaculture production of fish accounted for 44.1% of whole production (including for non-food uses) from capture fisheries and aquaculture in 2014. Coastal habitats (e.g. mangroves and marshes), geographic information systems (GIS) and remote sensing are more and more facilitating the differentiation and process of vegetation types important for establishing baselines and monitoring change.
Aquaculture Research 2019!!
“World Congress on Recent Advances in Aquaculture Research & Fisheries” which was originally scheduled for October 19-20, 2018 has been postponed to June 10-11, 2019 in Dublin, Ireland.
Classification of Aquatic Animals:
There are two types of culture Monoculture and Polyculture. Monoculture is the culture of specific species at a time.The advantage of this method of culture is that it assists the farmer to make the feed that will meet the requirement of a specific fish, especially in the intensive culture system. Polyculture is the practice of culture more than one species of aquatic organism in the same pond. Raising of different combination of fish in single pond is the motivational principle. They are also classified according to their Size and Feed.
Industry aquaculture activity concerned with extraction, culturing, processing, preserving, storing, transporting, marketing or selling fish or fish products. Catching of fish, culturing the fish, selling the fish and fish related products in a good quality in market are the commercial sector practices.Traditional sector include commercial sector but it is in very small scale, the fishing is in a traditional way such as rod and tackle, arrows and harpoons, throw nets and drag nets, etc. Various organizations provide Fishing books, magazines, design and building of boats with provision of accommodation, guide for fishing adventure, manufacture and retail of tackle and apparel. The ocean covers 71% of the earth’s surface and 80% of the value of exploited marine resources are attributed to the fishing industry.
Fishery is the kind of industry which includes catching and selling of fishes for the purpose of food, medicine and research. Other than marine water fisheries there are fresh water fisheries as well. There are two types of waters, namely, the fresh and the brackish. The fresh water sources are irrigation canals, reservoirs, lakes, tanks, ponds. The estuaries, lagoons and mangrove swamps constitute the brackish type of water.
Wave action hit the shoreline constantly with different strengths which shape the coastal lines resulting into various land levels. The sand dunes are made by atmospheric wind which blow in beach sand. Sedimentation in rocks, plants, animal and marine life is affected by warm weather condition. The salt is taken from the sea by wind and formation of salt crystals in the small pores in rocks leads to various rock texture. Due to the climatic change the sea levels rise and fall.
Technologies in Aquaculture:
Biotechnological process is used for improving the survival of endangered species and success in breeding process. It helps to conserve biodiversity. Newly emerging infectious disease is the major ongoing problem in aquaculture. In salmon farming, Holding Systems is the recent technology with advancement in the sea-cage design.
Normally fish feed consists of vitamins, micro and macro nutrients which is essential for metabolic function. In such fish feeds there are chances of toxin formation, which may lead to loss in productivity, morbidity and mortality.
