Environmental Hydraulics related to Aquaculture- 39th IAHR World Congress- Grenada, Spain

Participate in our special session on Environmental Hydraulics related to Aquaculture at the 39th IAHR World Congress, which will take place between 19 -24 June 2022 in Granada, Spain.

The rapid expansion of aquaculture industries globally in recent decades is challenged by a number of environmental concerns, including nutrient enrichment and waste dispersion, disease infestations and spreading, and sea floor deterioration below the farms. This session looks to receive original contributions from research groups and aquaculture industry covering topics such as flow (wave and current) interactions with aquaculture structures; near and far-field mass transport and mixing processes; sea-lice and pathogen dispersal; particulate waste transport, deposition and entrainment processes; mixing zone regulation for aquaculture effluents; and relevant field scale monitoring and/or modelling techniques.

Details of all the special sessions are given at
