    Agenda Item(s)

    This document is to announce our intension to hold ‘Workshop on krill culturing techniques’ at Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium, Japan, in September 2002. Port of Nagoya Public Aquarium recently succeeded in reproducing and raising Antarctic krill up to juvenile stages under an artificial condition. Several research groups in the world are also independently developing their culturing techniques. Developing techniques of culturing krill in large number is thought to be a major break through for further understanding of krill biology. However, these achievements are not effectively gathered to provide a standard methodology. The aim of the workshop is to share the knowledge to date about the methodology of krill culturing and experiments, and contribute to the future experimental studies on Antarctic krill.
