Apr 12, 2021 - Apr 15, 2021
Location: Clayton Springs, Cork, Ireland
Cork is a maritime city and port situated on Ireland’s south coast. It is located where the wild Atlantic Ocean meets the wandering gulf stream giving rise to clean and productive growing conditions for shellfish, salmon and sea vegetables. Clearly, it is important to get an under-standing of the relationships between offshore upwelling nutrients and land-based enrichment from a rich agricul-tural catchment. Here, where a traditional green econ-omy rubs shoulders with an ever expanding blue one, we can begin to look into the synergies made possible by sharing a productive coastal catchment.
There is now a momentum in all aspects of food produc-tion towards a circular economy whereby we no longer regard waste as a problem to be disposed of, but instead look for ways to make it a resource which can be re-used - thereby closing the loop on aquaculture inputs and outputs and reducing environmental impact.

Location: Funchal, Madeira Protugal
Europe faces important societal challenges arising from global environmental and social-economical threats. These include climate change, depletion of natural resources including water and energy, pollution, food security and safety and human migrations. In many ways, these challenges are more obvious in Southern Europe, at the frontier between two asymmetric continents, regarding population growth, education, land and water availability/uses, food production and economics.
But Europe, and particularly the European Union, is also in the forefront in facing these challenges with innovative policies regarding environmental protection, sustainable use of living resources, marine and coastal planning and leading technologi-cal developments and innovation.
Aquaculture has a clear place in securing food production in Europe and presents “Oceans of Opportunities” for development and investment if given the political and social licence to expand and develop, with public awareness/acceptance of its role. Aquaculture Europe 2021 will explore those oceans from the unique island that is Madeira.
The AE2021 parallel sessions will cover the full scope of European aquaculture and will comprise submitted oral and Eposter presentations. AE2021 will also feature an international trade exhibition, industry forum, student sessions and activities, satellite workshops and updates on EU research.
