10th International Symposium on Tilapia in Aquaculture
Invitation to ISTA10 Conference, 2013
We are delighted to invite you to participate in the ISTA10 Symposium that will take place in Jerusalem, Israel, on October 6-10, 2013.
The first ISTA conference was held in Nazareth, Israel, in 1983, and now, 30 years later it is returning to Israel. This will be the 10th of the highly successful series* of symposia that will draw together researchers, farmers, business persons and policy makers from all over the world to review the latest discoveries in tilapia nutrition, physiology, reproductive biology, genetics, ecology, improvements in production systems, and other fields related to tilapia.
The event will provide the opportunity of reflecting on 30 years of research and development of the tilapia industry as well as highlighting recent innovations and future prospects and how much and what of the research conducted actually affects culture practices.
It will also enable presentation of views about the future prospect of the industry in the changing ecological and economical environments.
The symposium will include a trade/exhibit show, which will provide an opportunity for industry suppliers, seafood marketers, and the aquaculture press to meet directly with researchers and fish-farmers.
The conference will take place in Jerusalem, the Capital of Israel and a uniquely important city for Jews, Christians and Muslims.
We have also prepared for our guests from all over the globe a wonderful program of entertainment as sightseeing in beautiful Jerusalem, reception cocktail, a night spectacular at King David Tower, and a gala dinner.
We are looking forward to meeting you at the ISTA10 in Jerusalem, wishing to make this a memorable event both socially and scientifically.
