The Reproduction in Percid Culture Workshop was organised by the EPFC in conjunction with Bord Iascaigh Mhara (BIM) and was held in the beautiful Carrick-on-Shannon, Ireland from the 8th-9th March 2017.
Our fellow colleague Stefan Teerlinck from Inagro in Belgium is hosting a five-day workshop providing hands-on practical training on all relevant aspects in relation to Reproduction of European pikeperch (Sander lucioperca). Organized and hosted by Stefan Teerlinck (Inagro) and taught by skilled experts Daniel Zarski (UWM) and Uros Ljubobratovic (NARIC) this workshop will combine theoretical and practical classes from induction of reproduction to egg quality assessment. After this workshop, participants will be able to improve and standardize their own reproduction on farm level.
Summary of the 6th EPFC Workshop, 17th October 2017, Dubrovnik/Croatia
“As a sector we can only grow, if we expand.” D. Toner
Research and improvements in the field of percid fish culture are progressing at a fast pace. New protocols have been developed or adapted to fit specific requirements of percids. Still, the lack of stable (re)production is requiring intensive knowledge exchange and further improvements. Consequently, the 6th EPFC workshop was geared towards exchange of practical knowledge under the title “New skillsets in Percid Fish Culture” in close connection with the EAS Aquaculture Europe 2017 in Dubrovnik. Building upon the success of preceding EPFC events, over 50 international participants attended the workshop and the six presentations and contributed to a fruitful discussion. The EPFC workshop again proved to be an ideal place to network and for knowledge transfer connecting attendants from research and industry.
