Over 250 international delegates representing researchers and students from universities, research institutions and industry from the five continents participate in the event. The ambitions of these scientists are to reduce disease in aquatic animals including farmed fish and shellfish, improve animal welfare, reduce the impact of antibiotics on the environment through the use of vaccination, and ultimately to produce a superior market product for the consumer.
