About the Conference The Centre of Advanced Study (CAS) in Marine Biology is a reputed Marine Institute in India which is actively engaged in teaching, research and extension activities in Marine Sciences. In recent years, animal disease has emerged as one of the most important factors hindering the development of aquaculture world wide. Aquatic animal diseases have the potential to seriously impact aquatic animal health, international trade, and the economy of the country. Aquatic animal health is fundamental to the sustainability of a marine aquaculture industry and commercial fishery whilst simultaneously protecting the greater public interest. The health management of finfish, molluscs and crustaceans in an essential element of maintaining fisheries resources and biodiversity in India will be the highlighting discussions of this conference. The conference will provide a stimulating and inclusive form for exchange of current scientific information on research, management and policy issues related to health and diseases of aquatic animals, whether wild, farmed, or held on exhibit. This important national gathering will be used to facilitate discussion and action on issues of national importance. Key themes of the conference will include (i).Infectious diseases in aquaculture, (ii).Planning and emergency response for aquatic animal health emergencies, (iii). Interaction of diseases between wild and farmed stocks, and (iv).Outcomes of environmental stress including effects of contaminants, and regional and global habitat alteration.
It is hoped that the conference will facilitate active participation by individuals typically under-represented at national meetings, including colleagues and students from all over the nation.
