29 Jul, 2015


Congratulations to the new Executive Committee of Fish Health Section (FHS) that has been elected for the period 2015-2017 and wish that the network under their guidance will do better than ever for the health of aquaculture sector.

During the period under report, Asian Fisheries Society in collaboration with Shanghai Ocean University has successfully organised the "2nd International Symposium on Aquacul-ture and Fisheries Education (ISAFE2)" on 22-24 April 2015 in Shanghai, China and was well attended.

Arrangements are in full swing for the organisation of 5th International Symposium on Cage Aquaculture in Asia (CAA5) scheduled for 25-28 November 2015 in Kochi, India, organ-ised by the Asian Fisheries Society in collaboration with the ICAR- Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute, Kochi, India and Asian Fisheries Society Indian branch.

Asia-Pacific FishWatch has made considerable progress in completing the profiles of four main oceanic tuna species (skipjack, yellowfin, bigeye and albacore tuna), which are among the top species in the region in terms of production and value and are significant global species. 

The newsletter also provides a list of conferences/symposia to take place in the next 12 months, important publications that have come out in 2015 and some major news items.

I look forward to Members' contributions to the newsletter.

Dr M.V. Gupta
