We are the producers, the investors, the suppliers, the processors, the vendors, the scientists, the educators, the students and the consumers of farmed aquatic products.

AQUA 2018 will celebrate the fact that aquaculture is one of the most important food production industries in the world. Aquaculture is the most efficient producer of high quality food and contributes to global health and wealth. Aquaculture respects the environment, creates employment and offers significant investment opportunities. AQUA 2018 will take place from August 25-29 in the beautiful French city of Montpellier and will comprise a scientific conference, trade exhibition, industry forums, workshops, student events and receptions. The event will highlight the latest aquaculture research and innovation to underpin continued growth of this exciting food production sector. The AQUA events are co-organised by the European Aquaculture Society (EAS) and the World Aquaculture Society (WAS) and are held every six years. Past events were held in Nice (2000), Florence (2006) and Prague (2012).

Neighboring the Provence area in southern France, Montpellier is the ideal place to stay and take advantage of the seashore and the many hidden treasures of the Languedoc-Roussillon region. Discover 6 major UNESCO World Heritage sites, scenic villages and landscapes and vast natural areas such as the Camargue marshland, and the Cévennes and Pyrénées mountains.
