You are invited to attend the 6th AQUAIMPROVE WORKSHOP held on October 19, 2022.


The AQUAIMPROVE Workshop aims to promote the presentation and debate on recent research advances in aquaculture-related topics in Portugal. It is directed to students, researchers, the academic community, and stakeholders.


The first AQUAIMPROVE Workshop was held in 2015 as an initiative of CIIMAR's NUTRIMU group, and the perception of the interest in this initiative encouraged us to promote it regularly as a meeting point for the scientific community, students, and stakeholders to discuss aquaculture-related issues.


This 6th edition of the AQUAIMPROVE Workshop will be held at CIIMAR Headquarters. As a forum for ideas exchanges and meeting people, we encourage you to attend the workshop in presence, but a mixed format is previewed, and you may also attend it by videoconference.


Of course, the success of this initiative is directly related to your willingness to attend it and present your recent research achievements. We encourage you to participate and to disseminate this event among your colleagues and students. Participation is free of charge, but pre-registration is required. Invited speakers will give plenary talks on edge-cutting topics related to aquaculture. Oral (15 min) and Poster presetationns are accepted and will be evaluated by a Scientific Committee.  Students' presentations are incentivized and will be prioritized.
