We are pleased to inform you that the Symposium on Diseases in Asian Aquaculture is back! Please mark your calendar:

  • Event : 11th Symposium on Diseases in Asian Aquaculture (DAA11)
  • Date : 29 Sept – 2 Oct 2020
  • Venue: Borneo Conventional Centre Kuching (BCCK), Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia

The 11th Symposium on Diseases in Asian Aquaculture (DAA11) marks 30 years since the Fish Health Section - Asean Fisheries Society (FHS-AFS) establishment and it will be celebrated in Malaysia. Local hosts, the Department of Fisheries Malaysia (DOF) under the Ministry of Agriculture and Agro-based Industry together with the Ministry of Modernisation of Agriculture, Native Land and Regional Development Sarawak (MANRED) will be organising the event in cooperation with the FHS-AFS.

The theme of the symposium is “Land of Adventure: Exploring Aquatic Animal Health for Sustainable Aquaculture". A comprehensive and ambitious scientific programme has been prepared, which will include presentations by a range of knowledgeable speakers from around the region. Ample time is schedule for networking, field trips, and social functions during the symposium. Trade displays will be exhibited throughout the symposium. DAA11 has introduced a 3-Minute Pitch (3MP) for each session, an extended form of the elevator pitch that was introduced in DAA10 (2017). 3MP is a great exercise for all speakers to construct research findings and pertinent information into a 3 minute speech. It will expose researchers to initiate their ideas and share research discoveries in brief, simple and clear manner to a wider audience.

We are now calling for online abstract submission. For more information about the symposium and online registration, please visit the DAA11 website or download the brochure attached below. Please feel free to contact our secretariat at [email protected] for assistance.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.

Best Regards,

DAA 11 National Technical Organizing Committee
