ICA at the Aquaculture Europe Conference and AquaNor Tradeshow 2013

By Langley Gace

I am looking forward to both AquaNor 2013 & the European Aquaculture Society (EAS) Conference that precedes the big tradeshow in Trondheim, Norway. The ICA will have a display at AquaNor, #C-244 where Carol Powell, Metallurgist, ICA Consultant & Specialist in Marine and Related Industries, Bob Dwyer, ICA Associate Director for Environment in the Health, Environment and Sustainable Development (HESD) Initiative and I will talk with visitors about the benefits of copper-alloy mesh pens.

AquaNor is held biannually in Trondheim. It is the largest salmon aquaculture event in the world, attracting between 15,000-20,000 visitors from 50 nations. The EAS meeting was launched in 1976. The name was changed to European Aquaculture Society in 1984. The mission of the EAS is described here.

On Saturday, August 10, Bob and I will be presenting at the EAS Conference.
