It is with great sorrow that we learned Dr Nandeesha has passed away in Chennai on December 27th, 2012. Dr Nandeesha was an inspiration and a relentless advocate of the empowerment of vulnerable aquaculture famers in Asia. Above all, he was a fine person. He will be dearly missed.
Your contributions to the family to help defray recent medical treatment costs are still greatly appreciated.
In order to give European industry representatives the opportunity to get a better insight in the Vietnamese and Chinese aquaculture industry and eventually make first contacts for business partnerships, business trips to Vietnam and to China is organised together with EATIP's Asia Desk and Vietnamese partners (Directory of Fisheries - MARD, Can Tho University, Research Institute for Aquaculture n°2 - Ho Chi Minh City) resp. Chinese partners (China AquaFishNet).
As a first step towards stronger collaboration on higher aquaculture & fisheries education, 8 leading Asian aquaculture & fisheries institutes have established a consortium.
