Development of decision support systems and virtual tools for the aquaculture business and management was presented and debated.The key speaker João G. Ferreira (FCT) gave a presentation on “Virtual Tools for Aquaculture” (http://ecowin.org/AE2010). He used AkvaVis from CMR as an example as a novel management approach. AkvaVis was after that presented during the session “Space for aquaculture” by Anne A. Hageberg (CMR).


In addition to the conference there was a workshop previous for the conference to discuss the theme and work on a strategy to promote this as a research area in EU’s research programme FP7. AkvaVis so far has a cooperation with Ifremer in France, but plans for a project with Irland and Spain last year did not succeed getting funded.
