International Symposium on Aquatic Animal Health in PEI Attracts over 450 delegates from 34 Countries

Aquaculture is the world’s fastest-growing sector for animal food production. And Atlantic Canadian companies are a prime resource in the evolution, growth and research into innovative solutions to challenges facing the global aquaculture industry. There are more than 30 organizations involved in aquaculture research and development throughout Atlantic Canada and several companies and the Atlantic Veterinary College in Prince Edward Island are helping to lead the way. PEI BioAlliance, in partnership with the Atlantic Veterinary College, and the American Fisheries Society’s Fish Health Section recently hosted more than 450 delegates from 34 different countries in Charlottetown, PEI for scientific workshops, presentations, partnering meetings, industry workshops, tours, and networking events. Find out more about the Conference and activities here.

Through funding support provided by our federal and provincial government partners, the BioAlliance works with our colleagues from across the Atlantic region (BioNova, BioNB, and NATI) to host a number of industry events, as well as incoming and outgoing industry missions.

VetHealth Global hosted by the PEI BioAlliance is one of the most beneficial conferences I’ve attended. The program and content was superb and we were able to meet with a number of companies through the partnering program. The quality of attendees was excellent. We look forward to attending in 2019!
