Daniel Żarski Ph.D. from our Institute has become the first Pole ever elected to the Board of the European Aquaculture Society, the most important scientific organization in the field of aquaculture on the Old Continent. This is another great achievement of our assistant professor!
The European Aquaculture Society (EAS) is an association established in 1984 to promote the development of European aquaculture as a platform for communication between scientists, producers, and legislators (at local and European levels). One of the really important elements of this communication is the organization of the largest scientific event in Europe combined with an aquaculture fait trades – the Aquaculture Europe Conference. This year the conference will be held in Rimini, Italy.
Daniel Żarski, Ph.D., who is an assistant professor in the Department of Gamete and Embryo Biology, was recently selected by EAS as the specialist responsible for the Aquaculture Europe 2022 scientific program. Now he has experienced an even greater honor.
EAS is governed by a Board of Directors under the direction of a Chair – elected for two-year terms. This year, Daniel Żarski Ph.D. was elected to the Board, making him the first-ever Pole to hold this honorable position. This is a result of his highly regarded work for the development of freshwater aquaculture to date, but also the recognition resulting from effective scientific work in the area of fish reproduction in its broadest sense.
– As a board member I will have a direct influence on the direction of the association and the debate on the development of aquaculture in Europe itself. In my program I emphasize supporting the development of freshwater aquaculture in Central Europe while remaining open to innovation in the sector on a European level, says Daniel Żarski.
Daniel Żarski will serve on the EAS Board from 2022 to 2024. It will be a challenging time, so we keep our fingers crossed that all the goals he has set will be achieved.
