Wednesday, September 11, 2019, 17:40 (GMT + 9)

The plenary sessions of the event have outstanding speakers to give their opinions and summaries of different aspects of them. Therefore, AE19 is pleased to present an introduction to the plenary sessions that will take place from October 7-11.

Day 1. Tuesday, October 8th 09h00 to 09h40. 

“The Environment and Fish Health” - Professor Charles R. Tyler, Biosciences, University of Exeter, UK

Fish are incredibly diverse and have adapted to live in almost every type of water on earth (in some cases even heavily polluted waters). The physiological diversity that has enabled them to do so is quite staggering.  Equally aquatic environments, most notably freshwaters, are some of the most threatened globally due to high demands for freshwater, excessive pollution, overfishing and alterations due to changes in climate.

Fish are excellent barometers of aquatic ecosystem health and declines in both their diversity and abundance globally is a major cause for concern, not least because of their fundamental roles in ecosystem function and as a source for food for hundreds of millions of millions of people. Understanding the adaptive physiological mechanisms of fish is important as we seek ways to better protect our fisheries to ensure their sustainability and also for aquaculture as we look to develop efficiencies in production, preservation of genetic integrity and ensuring good animal welfare.  This talk will be free ranging with the purpose of provoking thought into might better translate knowledge on fish physiology for optimizing aquaculture practice.

Day 2. Wednesday 9th 09h00 to 10h00. 

“Producer, trade and consumer” A presentation/panel session moderated by Alexander Wever, AWF Consulting, Berlin, Germany

The Day 2 plenary is a presentation/discussion on the most relevant topics from the tri-lateral constellation of aquaculture production, trade and consumption in Europe. It shall give voice to the concerns and standpoints of producers, traders and consumers, referring to the “elephant in the room” which are standpoints that are very clear to everyone familiar with the business but usually left unsaid, additionally challenging them with highlighted individual statements from random European stakeholders (video messages). 

Within this short time slot, we would like to provide delegates an insight in the complexity of professional aquaculture production and trade in the very sensitive context of European consumer expectations, globalized market structures and other “realities”. The session will be introduced by Birgit Schmidt-Puckhaber with an initial presentation by Alexander Wever, AWF Consulting and followed by a discussion with our panellists from Aquapri and ASC

Day 3. Thursday 10th 11h45 to 12h30.

“Managing risks in a changing environment” – Dr. Dina Dziuba, Senior Underwriter, Agricultural Risks, Hannover Re, Germany.

Over recent years, we have seen various impacts of climate change influencing the agriculture - and especially aquaculture - insurance and reinsurance world. Frequency and severity of extreme weather conditions, e.g. hail and storm damage in the polar regions, heat and drought in the equatorial regions, not only require adapted production management and improved technology, but also new approaches to risk management. Other impact factors, e.g. based on geopolitical stability and operations in new and emerging regions, have also challenged the methods and models used to understand, assess and eventually predict risks and damages.

As reinsurance provider, we interact closely with our customers and producers to work on new coping strategies. A key element for us is the improved understanding of weather and climate . This final plenary will dive into this and give insights into future changes in food production systems and how aquaculture fits in that picture.

The European Aquaculture Society Aquaculture Europe 2019 will be held in the Estrel Hotel and Conference Center, Berlin from October 7 to 11. We have had very strong interest in this event, with more than 880 abstracts received for presentation. A very varied programme is being finalised, with 55 sessions over the three conference days. 150 booths have been sold for our trade show and 8 special sessions link business and science.
