Presentations online! – AquaVIP Gdynia summer school

The University of Gdansk organized AquaVIP Gdynia Summer School, an online course on the topic of Aquaculture – promising solutions of technologies for the South Baltic Region – RAS – shrimps – aquaponics – algae, on the 17-20 May 2021. The aim of the course was to showcase new trends in innovative aquaculture, with the focus on Recirculating Aquaculture Systems, shrimps cultivation, algae and aquaponics, and to help develop aquaculture skills and expand career opportunities among students and professionals.

The event was directed to entrepreneurs, students, local authorities, researchers and specialists interested in innovative technologies in aquaculture, the state-of-play in the Baltic Sea region and global trends, as well as opportunities and common challenges in aquaculture. Speakers from the University of Gdańsk, AquaVIP partner universities: University of Rostock and Klaipeda University as well as professionals from shrimp and fish farms, and forty participants from and outside the Baltic area took part in the event, including students, researchers, and professionals from various disciplines and of different interests: fish, fish feed, fish welfare, shrimps, recirulating aquaculture systems, algae, aquaponics, mussels, IMTA, and the environment.

The 4-day certified course introduced the participants to background theory and provided practical hands – on experience on modern aquaculture technology and innovative blue biotechnology. The course was based on ongoing aquaculture experiments carried out in the University of Gdańsk, and partner aquaculture institutions. The course included a Career panel session, when participants shared presentations on their research, work, interests in various aquaculture-related topics. The provision of scientific and technical skills enabled the exchange of know – how and good practices between experts and participants. Presentations and discussions were focused on state-of play in innovative aquaculture in the Baltic Sea Region and outside in respect to facts, present problems, trends, solutions, and potential of recirculating aquaculture systems, aquaponics and algae cultivation, new solutions for aquaculture and the products.

Thank you all for participation!
