Symposium of World's Chinese Scientists on Nutrition and Feeding of Finfish and Shellfish


World’s Chinese Scientists on Nutrition and Feeding of Finfish and Shellfish (WCSNFFS) is a theme conference on aquatic animal nutrition and feeding for the world’s Chinese hosted by aquatic animal nutrition and feed professional committee of China Society of Fisheries. WCSNFFS is initiated at Guangzhou in 1992 by Professor Linding from Zhongshan University and Dr. Zhuang from Taiwan for the first symposium and have been successfully held for 8 sessions. The following symposia were jointly hosted by Ocean University of China, Xiamen University, Shanghai Ocean University, Sichuan Agricultural University, Jimei University, Institute of Hydrobiology, Chinese Academy of sciences, The Chinese academy of agricultural science institute of feed, Chinese cereals and oil association feed branch and other universities and scientific research institutes at respectively Qingdao in 1995, Shanghai in 1998, Wuhan in 2001, Zhuhai in 2004, Tsingdao in 2006, Beijing in 2008 and Chengdu in 2011. Since 2010, frequency of once every three years is reformed into once every two years. And WCSNFFS and International Symposium on Fish Nutrition and Feeding (ISFNF) take turns to hold symposium with WCSNFFS in single year and ISFNF in dual year. Up to date, WCSNFFS have become a major event for the Chinese Fish and Shrimp Nutrition in worldwide. It offers a communication platform for the academics and the business industry which makes a contribution to the improvement of aquatic feed technology, to R&D of Industry Liaison, to the sustainable healthy growth of aquatic feed industry.
