The 8th International Symposium on Sturgeon



The International Symposia on Sturgeon (ISS) take place in a four-year cycle in varying countries in alternating regions with major importance for sturgeons and sturgeon biology. This series of symposia is governed by the World Sturgeon Con-servation Society (WSCS) aiming at the facilitation of exchange between experts worldwide working in conservation or aquaculture. Sturgeons were among the first species that suffered from the increasing industrialization and human population development in Europe. The series of ISSs revealed the involvement of an increasing number of experts dealing with this ancient group of fishes and the associated issues concerning their decline, recovery options and production. Increasingly, the conference has developed from the classical presentation of scientific results to a forum on management issues.
The upcoming venue in Vienna, Austria from September 10th to 16th, 2017 as an all-European effort to bring together the sturgeon experts worldwide to draw the international attention to the pressing issues of sturgeon conservation in a densely-populated region that reveals the most intense conflicts between economic de-velopment and nature conservation. Furthermore, the location draws the attention to the necessity of a transboundary approach since the Danube River - the last resort of functional sturgeon populations in Europe and the system shared by the largest number of countries worldwide - is highly threatened by the intensified economic development.

Visita de los alumnos del Máster de Acuicultura a la Piscifactoría de Torrebaja

 

El pasado jueves, 4 de mayo los alumnos del Máster de Acuicultura visitaron la Piscifactoría de Torrebaja, en la zona del Rincón de Ademuz, en Valencia.

Se trata de una instalación de producción de trucha arco-iris en circuito abierto, que toma las aguas del río Ebrón (un afluente del río Turia).


Pudieron observar la instalación para la incubación de huevos embrionados, los tanques exteriores de engorde, con aireación natural por cascada, y la balsa de decantación para la eliminación de residuos.
