The contributors across the globe invite interested individuals to Conference Series premier 7th International Conference on Aquaculture & Fisheries to be held during October 19-21, 2017 at Rome, Italy. Aquaculture congress is the premier event that brings together a unique and International mix of experts including scientists, researchers and decision makers both from academia and industry across the globe to exchange their knowledge, experience and research innovations. Aquaculture is a Major Field in modern food supply. According to the FAO, aquaculture "is understood as the farming of aquatic organisms including fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants. Farming implies some form of intervention in the rearing process to enhance production, such as regular stocking, feeding, protection from predators, etc. 

Aquaculture in Italy is characterized of the high level of specialization and large scale production. Traditional extensive aquaculture is still carried out in the “valli” which are brackish lagoons, especially in the north-eastern regions. More modern aquaculture techniques for marine species include onshore intensive farms, cage systems in the sea (mariculture) and, in the case of shellfish, cultivation on ropes and bags (mussels), or directly on the intertidal substrate (clams). Aquaculture is developed along all Italian coasts, but with higher density along the Adriatic coasts.

This Aquaculture conference will cover the new research techniques and concentrate on aquaculture exhibition of new feeds, fish welfare, antibiotics, instruments introduced by the aquaculture fisheries laboratories. It also covers the increase in need for demanding sea food. Aquaculture brings basic and advanced research of Developmental, Toxicological and Transgenic aspects.
