2019 Aquaculture Association of Nova Scotia Student Scholarship 

On January 24th & 25th 2019, the AANS will host its annual Sea Farmers Conference at the Halifax Hotel, formerly Delta Halifax. The AANS is calling for post-secondary students to submit a short abstract of their project related to the aquaculture industry to be considered for presentation during the 2019 Sea Farmers Conference. Eligible projects will be then invited (limited space) to present their work in the format of a poster that will be displayed during the conference. Also, from those that wish to be considered, 3 finalists will be selected to present their work (7 minutes oral presentation, followed by 1 min question period) to the delegates on Thursday, January 24th, 2019.
