Sustainable Aquatic Research

1st International Symposium on
"Sustainable Aquatic Research"

21-24 May 2024 - İzmir / Türkiye


The Society of "Sustainable Aquatic Research" is an international scientific organization established to serve all researchers who contribute today and in the future to the idea of placing sustainable aquatic research at the center of science".

We believe that "there has never been  a greater need for sustainable aquatic research" and, 

 It is time to take  action to ensure sustainability of aquatic ecosystem globally by enhancing cooperation among government, scientific

and commercial organizations and individuals. 

We know that achieving sustainable life will be possible with sustainable aquatic research.

We strongly believe that it is  essential  for  the continuation  of  all  living  and  non-living  existence  on  our planet.

We will be honored to see among us all the volunteers who want to contribute to SAQUARES' attainment of its purpose.

As the SAQUARES family,

We promise that we will dedicate all our energies to achieving our goal...

Student Representative:………..

In particular “SSAR” have s wider remit than just aquaculture, and will include all aspects of aquatic research specifically involving sustainability.

We hope that a synergy will emerge from the coming together of different scientific fields. In this way, interdisiplinary collaborations will emerge, and we will have the opportunity to work together for the future of our planet.
