EAS timelineposter

Since EAS was founded in 1976, much has happened in European aquaculture. We have put together a series of milestones to give you an overview of what EAS has achieved during the last 40 years. Some you will know and others (I hope) will be a surprise for you. In any case, I hope you enjoy this summary of the life of our Society. Sadasivam Kaushik. EAS President 2014 – 2016.
