Location: Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia
The "Annual Seminar on Marine Science and Aquaculture" commenced in 2003 in Universiti Malaysia Sabah. It provided a platform to exchange knowledge about the marine ecosystem and development of aquatic food resources through sustainable fisheries and aquaculture. From 2014, this annual event was rebranded and is now known as the “International Conference on Marine Science and Aquaculture (ICOMSA)”
The theme for ICOMSA 2017 is "New Frontier in Sustainable Marine Bioresources". This topic is of global relevance and is particularly important for a country such as Malaysia where marine ecosystem services play a significant role in socio-economic development, aquaculture industry is growing at a fast rate and seafood consumption is high. The conference program will be structured to include papers dealing with overcoming the challenges through innovative solutions.
Our goal is to demonstrate how science and new ideas can provide the best possible solutions to our ever-changing marine environment, and addressing existing and evolving challenges which are critical for ocean ecosystem balance and sustainability of benefits we derive from ocean-based economies such as fisheries, aquaculture, and ecotourism.

Location: Centre for Feed Technology (FôrTek), As, Norway
This 3-day course covers the principles of extrusion, the design of extrusion processes for aquatic feeds, as well as how the formulation interacts with the extrusion process. Principles learned will be demonstrated using the extruder in the Centre for Feed Technology pilot plant.
The program provides a good background in general extrusion technology, but is specifically directed at aquafeed extrusion. The course is relevant to both single and twin screw extrusion technology.
The course will cover topics from the basics of extruders and their configuration, through what is happening chemically and physically inside the extruder barrel, to an understanding of extruder dies and extruder instability.
Location: Osaka, Japan
Aquaculture, also known as aquafarming, is the farming of fish, crustaceans, molluscs, aquatic plants, algae, and other aquatic organisms involving freshwater and saltwater cultivation under controlled conditions. Observing and understanding the dynamics of the oceans as well as managing, harvesting and culturing its resources in sustainable ways requires knowledge and smart technological solutions. This is the key place where the 6th Global Summit on Aquaculture and Fisheries emphasies on and young researchers and scholars share their valuable expriences which focus on the Conference theme: To Create and Disseminate the Knowledge of Aquatic Resources!!!!
