ISS8 provides the unique opportunity to bring together sturgeon experts from all over the world to discuss and share their ideas and concepts to further improve the management of sturgeons along with their essential habitats.
The second stronghold of the conference will be the aquaculture sector. Europe has a large share in sturgeon farming and caviar production. Traditionally, European traders have been the dominating distributors in caviar trade. Therefore, the European focus on caviar and caviar trade will provide a vital input for the conference topics. Quality control, alternative production methods, market trends and collaborative approaches in production and marketing, as well as control and enforcement are among the key issues to be addressed to meet the future challenges in this sector.
