Giant Prawn 2017

August 16, 2016  By Quentin Dodd

GIANT PRAWN Conferences are the major conferences on the farming of Macrobrachium spp.

GIANT PRAWN 2017 (GP 2017) is poised to be the next big thing to happen in the global farming

and conservation of freshwater prawns of the genusMacrobrachium. Although the name could be taken to refer only to the Giant Malaysian prawn M. rosenbergii, in fact the event will encompass all species of Macrobrachium that are currently farmed. This mega event is organized by Salin Krishna and Michael New.

In addition to the four workshop days (20,21,22, & 23 March 2017) with invited keynote speakers, presentations and discussions, there will be a one-day (March 24) field trip to a prawn farm and hatchery in Thailand.

A three day March 17, 18 and 19 prawn hatchery training program will also be offered.
