Integrating Innovative Approaches for Competitive and Sustainable Performance across the Mediterranean Aquaculture Value Chain

Module 1: Specialised Case Study Discussions on How to Manage a Health Issue on a Sea Bass / Sea Bream Farm

Three short sessions (90 minutes) have been designed for seabass and seabream health and welfare experts. In these sessions the experts attending will be provided with a mock case based on real situations in sea bream and sea bass health and disease management designed by the organising team. The mock cases will be sent to the selected attendees two days in advance and they will be requested to send in advance and present in the session their own proposed recommendations or proposed solutions for each case. During the 90 minutes sessions all proposals will be shared and discussed.
