Akva group subsidiary Helgeland Plast is doubling capacity for both its Polarcirkel boats and pipe production in a NOK 100 million (£9.24m) reorganisation which the Norwegian company says will benefit the aquaculture industry.
Organic production of salmon soared by 24 per cent between 2012 and 2015 across the EU, while it doubled for rainbow trout and tripled for seabass/seabream, according to a study by the European Market Observatory for Fisheries and Aquaculture Products (Eumofa).

WAS has found that many people wait to submit an abstract until closer to the meeting because they are waiting for the latest data/results. The late submissions cause problems for the presenter and the Program Committee in dealing with them and making proper assignment. Many times the session the presenter wants is already full.
This year we would like to encourage you to submit your abstract early – which will get you into the process and give your submission a better chance of being accepted for your desired presentation. We will then accept replacement abstracts until April 30, 2017. You can send a revised abstract by email attachment and we will then replace the old one with the emailed version which will go into the Abstract Book USB.
