European experts discuss new strategies for the conservation of endangered freshwater fish
PROISER R+D received 30 researchers in its facilities, and organised a workshop focused on CASA system management.
Thirty international experts met on March 11 in the Science Park of the University of Valencia (PCUV) to discuss new strategies for the conservation of the species of fresh water fish endangered in Europe. It is the Group IMPRESS, a training network of doctors under the actions Marie Curie of Horizon 2020. The meeting was organized by our staff, in collaboration with Polytechnic University of Valencia.
We are IMPRESS (Improved Productions Strategies for Endangered Freshwater Species) research program participant. There is one researcher doing her PhD with Carles Soler, our scientific director. On March 11, in the facilities of the Science Park and PROISER's, we received 31 experts from the multidisciplinary network born in the context of Horizon 2020 and oriented to the training of new researchers in the emerging field of the biology of reintroduction.
Image analysis applied to the seminal study was one of the main issues to be addressed in an encounter that posed production strategies innovative for the conservation and management of the freshwater fish in danger of extinction, such as Atlantic salmon, European eel, and sturgeon.
The workshop was part of the ' Marie Curie COST-AQUAGAMETE' action for the improvement of the quality of gametes in fish, and therefore of aquatic resources.
