Barcelona, October 10, 2014
We would like you to invite you to participate in the 2nd FitFish Workshop on the Physiology of Swimming in Fish. This workshop is the continuation of the successful 1st FitFish Workshop that was held in this same venue in July 2-3, 2010.
The purpose of this second workshop is to consolidate the tremendous amount of expertise and knowledge on the physiology of swimming in fish that has accummulated over the last four years and to be able to provide students and researchers in the field, as well as other scientists, industry participants and even policy makers, with an up-to-date vision of this exciting field of research.
In this second workshop we will have invited talks by leading researchers in the field covering three major aspects related to the Swimming Physiology of Fish: 1) Functional mechanisms involved in the adaptive responses to swimming in fish; 2) Fish migration and 3) Swimming in Aquaculture.
We strongly welcome presentations from participants in a poster format.
The 2nd FitFish Workshop on the Physiology of Swimming in Fish is supported by COST Action FA1304 “Swimming of fish and implications for migration and aquaculture (FITFISH)”. More info can be found at: http://www.cost.eu/domains_actions/fa/Actions/FA1304.
This workshop is also organized with the support of the Societat Catalana de Biologia (Catalan Society of Biology), part of the Institut d’Estudis Catalans (Institute of Catalan Studies), and as an event of the Secció d’Aqüicultura (Aquaculture Section) of the SCB.
We hope that you will be interested in participating in this 2nd FitFish workshop and that you can join us in Barcelona on October 10, 2014, for an exciting one-day workshop on this important topic.
With kind regards,
