Abstracts sought for ISAAH 2018

ISAAH 2018 ISAAH 2018's theme is ‘Integrating Biotechnology in the Advancement of Aquatic Animal Health'

Abstract submissions for oral and poster presentations at the International Symposium on Aquatic Animal Health (ISAAH 2018) are being sought.

Conference registration has also opened for the symposium, which this year has the theme of ‘Integrating Biotechnology in the Advancement of Aquatic Animal Health.’

Around 300–400 fish health professionals from around the world will attend the thirtieth anniversary of the ISAAH, due to include scientific workshops, business meetings, keynote and research presentations.

This year ISAAH 2018, which takes place every four years, will be held 2-6 September on Prince Edward Island, Canada.

Aquaculture is the world’s fastest-growing sector for animal food production and there are more than 30 organisations involved in aquaculture research and development throughout Atlantic Canada. The Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island is also involved in developing innovative solutions to sector challenges.

ISAAH 2018 is being hosted by the Fish Health Section of the American Fisheries Society, the Atlantic Veterinary College, and the Prince Edward Island BioAlliance.

This will be only the second time the Conference has been hosted in Canada; the inaugural conference took place in Vancouver in 1988.
