Report of the Global Conference of Aquaculture 2010 in Phuket, Thailand
Ching Fui Fui, Second-year PhD student (Seedling Production Group)
The Global conference on aquaculture was attended nearly 300 registrants including prominent scientists, young researchers, fisheries and private sectors nationwide dated 22nd to 25th September 2010 in Phuket, Thailand. Conference was co-organised by Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), Network of Aquaculture Centre in Asia Pacific (NACA) and Department of Fisheries of Thailand.

On day 1, two opening keynotes had been astoundingly addressed by 2 outstanding speakers, Prof. Dr. Monkombu Sambasivan Swaminathan (India) and Mr. Jiansan Jia (FAO), in which they emphasized the aquacultureユs contribution to food security, poverty alleviation, employment and climate change on aquaculture. I was also truly impressed by the well organized tentative in which including, a series of informative plenary lecture, thematic session and expert penal presentations by numerous of prominent speakers. Topics of discussion including regional and global overview on aquaculture, climate change impact on aquaculture, genetic modification in aquaculture by-products, advanced technology and efficient feeding strategy in aquaculture and etc.

The poster presentation took place from day 2 until the end of conference day. A total of 142 posters had been displayed and participated by 30 countries. I presented a study entitled, 'Comparison on larval survival and growth of tiger grouper, Epinephleus fuscoguttatus at different feeding time'. In this session, I took an opportunity to interact and get to know many other researchers from various field of expertise to exchange and gather scientific information and build acquaintances, friendships and research network as well.

I am deeply honoured and excited to have won the best poster in this prestigious conference. The best poster award was indeed an unexpected surprise but it shows a research funded by the Kinki University G-COE Program is globally recognized. I would like to express my indebted appreciation to the Kinki University G-COE Program for giving me this most precious opportunity and will now devote myself to strive excellently to achieve further success in future.

Report on 13th International Society for Microbial Ecology
Sharifa Noor Emilia, Second-year PhD student (Environment Group)
From 22nd August until 29th August 2010, I attended 13th International Society for Microbial Ecology (ISME13) at Washington State Convention & Trade Center, Seattle, Washington. This event is once every two years thus it was a huge event full of interesting studies and well-known scientists focusing on microbial ecology. There were participants from all over America, Britain, third world countries, Asia, Iran and many more.

I did my poster presentation entitled 'Combination of Roseobacter clade affiliated bacteria and phytoplankton greater inhibition in fish pathogenic bacteria' on the fifth day, 27th August 2010 under Marine Microbiology session.

I explained on the possible phenomena expressed by the combination of promising bacteria (Roseobacter clade affiliated, RCA) and phytoplankton (Nannochloropsis oculata) against different serotypes of fish pathogenic bacteria (Vibrio anguillarum). During the poster session, team from Denmark and Germany did a similar work with me but their strain are different and we could get into deeper discussion. Besides that, 1 popular question was about what is the inhibition substance(s) produce by Roseobacter clade bacteria which I need to further investigate. I explained about my poster for two hours and really enjoyed the great discussion with scientist from all over the world. Besides poster presentations, there were many interesting oral presentation too.

At this conference, there were many interesting topics on varieties of fish or human pathogens inhibition by beneficial bacteria, on how human pathogenic bacteria were triggered by a species of ameba to become virulent to human being especially during operations and developments of new method to identify bacteria quantitatively with advance and precise molecular method. This conference gave me new opportunities in establishing new network for future use especially in the microbiology sector.

I do learnt a lot from this conference as it was in a large scale of microbiology covering from soil microbiology, oil degradation microbes, disease ecology, viral process, bacteria symbiosis, how the climate effecting the microbial world, biodiversity and community analysis and many more. It really open up my mindset on how broad and wide microbiology field can be. I really appreciate GCOE for funding this informative and valuable conference as the experience and knowledge gained can be useful for my doctoral study or future use.

第12回国際寄生虫学会議(ICOPA XII)参加報告

白樫 正 博士研究員(養殖グループ)
2010年8月15日〜20日に開催された、第12回国際寄生虫学会議(ICOPA XII)に参加するため真冬のオーストラリア・メルボルンを訪れた。
本会議は4年に一度開催される世界最大の寄生虫学会議で、いわば寄生虫研究者のオリンピックである。第12回の今回は“Understanding the global impact of parasites-from genomes to function and disease”と題し、世界各国から2000名以上の研究者が集い、ポスターを含め、1991件の発表があった。私にとっては今回がカナダで開催された2002年以来、2回目の参加となる。




International and annual meeting of Korean Society of

Food science and technology出張報告

博士後期課程2年 田中 照佳(利用・安全グループ)
平成22年6月16日から18日、韓国(仁川)で開催された「International and annual meeting of Korean Society of Food science and technology」に参加しました。


さて、私は「Establishment of assay system of skin collagen from bluefin tuna」というタイトルでフィッシュコラーゲンのELISAによる定量系の確立についてポスター発表を行いました。同行したポスドクのハンさんの助けもあり私の微力な英会話でも無事ディスカッションを終えることができました。しかし、今日のグローバル社会において国際会議での発表はますます重要になってくることが考えられるので、英会話力の更なる向上が必要だと感じました。



Report on Symposium at SARDI in Adelaide, Australia

Bimol Chandra Roy, Post-doctoral Fellow

(Utilization and Safety Group) The 2nd Global COE program symposium of Kinki University, 2009 'Sustainable Aquaculture of the Bluefin and Yellowfin Tuna - Closing the Life Cycle for Commercial Production'. The symposium was held at the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI), Adelaide, Australia from November 30 to December 2, 2009. In this symposium, more than 70 researchers came from different corners of the world especially from Italy, Germany, USA, Indonesia, Australia and Japan.

The symposium began with welcome speech from Prof. Kenji Takii (Sub-leader, G-COE Program of Kinki University), Associate Prof. Rob Thomas (Chief Scientist, SARDI); Dr. Len Stephens (Managing Director, Australian Seafood CRC); Mr. Hagen Stehr (Clean Seas Tuna). Then the morning session started with presents by Dr. Mike Thomson; the Overview of Clean Seas Tuna, by Dr. Yasuo Agawa; Introduction of selective breeding of Pacific bluefin tuna and its molecular biological approaches and so on as per schedule. There was a very fruitful discussion session at the end of the day.

I presented one of my studies entitled 'Comparison of lipid and fatty acid compositions in different flesh cuts of farmed fed, farmed fast and wild Pacific bluefin tuna (Thunnus orientalis)'.

From this symposium, I have a better understanding of the direction of global research of tuna species. I also acquired some knowledge about tuna flesh quality from this symposium and recent trend of tuna meat research globally. It was a great experience for me to join this symposium. I was also enjoyed lively discussions with other researchers from different countries. I am so grateful to the Kinki University G-COE Program for having me this most valuable opportunity which encourage me to devote myself for further successes in future.

After oral presentation, poster presenter also presented their works orally for a few minutes each on the 2nd day of this symposium. At present, Fisheries Laboratory of Kinki University is the leading institute in the world to spawn tuna in captive, hatching eggs and successfully produce market size cultured bluefin tuna. Recently, scientists of aquaculture successfully spawn tuna and hatch eggs. But all over the world except Kinki University, no one knows the techniques how to survive the hatched fish larvae.

I was very much impressed with the way in which the countries like Australia, USA, Indonesia and also Japan had initiative nationally or internationally by providing substantial funding for research into commercially important tuna species. After presentation, there was a session of panel discussion in which participants asked questions to the panel board members (Dr. Amal Biswas from Japan, Dr. Mike Thomson and Dr. Abigail Elizur from Australia, Dr. Daniel D. Benetti from USA, Dr. Massimo Caggiano from Italy), who were the experts of nutrition, breeding, feeding etc about tuna. After panel discussion, Professor Dr. Wataru Sakamoto has given thanks to all participants in this symposium.
