• To promote the sponsorship of research, particularly at the European level.

Primary Activities of the EAS include: 

• Publishing a bimonthly international scientific journal (Aquaculture International), a quarterly magazine (Aquaculture Europe), and publications within the series of special publications;

    Aquaculture International is an international bi-monthly journal publishing original research papers, short communications, technical notes and review papers on all aspects of aquaculture.

    The Journal covers topics such as:

    * the biology, physiology, pathology and genetics of cultured fish, crustaceans, molluscs and plants: especially new species. 

    * The water quality of supply systems, fluctuations in water quality within farms and the environmental impacts of aquacultural operations.

    * nutrition, feeding and stocking practices, especially as they affect the health, behaviour, appetite, conversion efficiency and growth rates of cultured species.

    * The development of economically sound and sustainable production techniques.

    * Bioengineering studies focusing on important aspects of the design and management of both offshore and land-based systems, as well as the integration and application of improved scientific and engineering technologies.

    * The improvement of quality and marketing of farmed products.

    * The sociological and societal impacts of aquaculture.

    Each article will, where appropriate, include a clear statement of the practical significance and implications of the results obtained from original research conducted or literature synthesized, in a way that can be readily appreciated by commercial farmers.
