Event AQUA NOR FORUM 2007 - "Welfare-driven technology"

The AQUA NOR FORUM 2007 is the first of a new type of events, organised by the EAS every second AQUA NOR, that provides a forum for science, industry, consumers and policy makers to review developments in the aquaculture sector and to discuss the key issues that affect those developments.
Under the theme, ‘WELFARE-DRIVEN TECHNOLOGY - How our shared understanding of aquatic animals’ needs will shape their future homes", the AQUA NOR FORUM 2007 will address the issue of welfare as a driver for technological development in aquaculture. The forum will be divided into three sessions, which look at different “housing situations” (structures used for the production of aquatic animals) and the interaction between different stakeholders in designing production systems. The three sessions are brought together in a press conference that summarises discussions and recommends future action.
