Last week our PhD student María Fernández-Míguez (UVIGO) and her supervisor Montse Pérez (IEO, Aquaculture Unit) attended the AQUA 2018-World Aquaculture Meeting, celebrated August 25-29th in Le Corum: Palais des Congrès (Montpellier, France).
Aquaculture is one of the most important food production industries in the world, as well as the most efficient producer of high quality food and contributes to global health and wealth. Therefore, AQUA 2018 comprised a great opportunity of being update about the latest techniques and species used in aquaculture. Moreover, AQUA 2018 involved several scientific conferences from different research fields, trade exhibition, industry forums, workshops, student events and receptions. The event highlighted 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.
María had the opportunity to introduce her research advancement at NOFIMA during her stage in Norway (short training stage from Xunta de Galicia predoctoral grant). She gave an oral presentation about the INFLUENCE OF MATERNAL FACTORS ON EGG QUALITY IN ATLANTIC COD Gadus morhua, which aims to identify the genes and maternal factors involved in embryonic development and «egg quality» using standard quality indicators and gene expression.
