2nd International Conference of Fish & Shellfish Immunolog | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

June 26th – 30th, 2016

Holiday Inn By the Bay

Portland, Maine, USA

 

"We are excited to announce the next International Conference of Fish & Shellfish Immunology will be held in beautiful Portland, Maine.  ICFSI 2016 will be the 2nd International Conference of Fish & Shellfish Immunology and the first time it will be hosted in the United States.

The sea has provided food and a way of life to Maine people for centuries. Today, Maine fish and shellfish seafood is a half-billion dollar industry that supports fishing families, working waterfronts, local economies, and our heritage. Portland is one of New England’s oldest cities settled in 1633.  It is the largest city in Maine and boasts an active social scene with renowned seafood restaurants and many independent microbreweries.  For many it is a foodies dream, and Portland, Maine was voted “Foodiest Small City” in the US by Bon Appetit magazine.

The Holiday Inn by the Bay offers quality accommodation at reasonable rates, and outstanding conference facilities, with the ease and convenience of being close to the center of Portland, and Portland harbor.

And there will be lots of outstanding science too!"

Scottish Government - An Assessment of the Benefits to Scotland of Aquaculture

Scottish Government - An Assessment of the Benefits to Scotland of Aquaculture | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

A New independent report shows the Scottish aquaculture industry ‘provides considerable benefits for fragile economic areas’  contributing up to £1.4 billion to Scottish economy.

 

"The report commissioned by Marine Scotland and the Highlands and Islands Enterprise has been published by Imani and SRSL. 

 

The economic benefits from the industry are wide ranging and are felt across Scotland including areas that are not traditionally associated with it such as the Central Belt.

 

The report estimates that if the 2020 industry production target of 223,000 tonnes is met it could have a turn-over value of £2 billion to the Scottish economy and support 10,000 jobs.

 

Other findings include:

Direct production alone contributed a turn-over of at least £550 million to the Scottish economy and 2,800 jobs in 2012Including added income across the country the industry is currently estimated to contribute a turn-over of £1.4 billion and 8,000 jobs in ScotlandSignificant improvements have been made to the environmental impact of the industry and compares well with other animal production industriesQuality and high value is Scottish aquaculture’s trump card"

This may be a bit parochial, but a welcome study on the Scottish Aquaculture Industry that will provide good insight into the industry and economic factors for all students of aquaculture
