About DAA Symposia

“Diseases in Asian Aquaculture” (DAA) series is held once in every three years by The Fish Health Section of the Asian Fisheries Society (AFS-FHS). AFS-FHS was established on January 30, 1990 at the Third Meeting of the Asian Fish Health Network (AFHN) at the Faculty of Marine Science and Fisheries, University Pertanian Malaysia (UPM). Since then, DAA symposia have been held in Indonesia (DAA1), Thailand (DAA2 and DAA3), the Philippines (DAA4), Australia (DAA5), Sri Lanka (DAA6), Taiwan (DAA7), India (DAA8), Vietnam (DAA9) and back to Indonesia (DAA10). After 30 years of AFS-FHS establishment, DAA11 will be held in Malaysia for the first time.

The DAA11 symposium aims to combine intellectual stimulation while exploring the nature of Sarawak. DAA11 anticipates the attendance of 400-500 delegates from 20-30 countries which will be held over four days. With the chosen theme: “Land of Adventure: Exploring Aquatic Animal Health for Sustainable Aquaculture”, main topics will cover Biosecurity in Aquaculture, Epidemiology, Detection method/Diagnostic, Prevention & Control Measures and cutting-edge research in  fish and shrimp health management. There will be ample time scheduled for networking, field trips, and social functions during the Symposium. Trade displays will be exhibited throughout the Symposium.

The National Organizing Committee of DAA11 is proud to announce the introduction of the 3-Minute Pitch (3MP), at the end of each session. This session is an extended form of an elevator pitch that was introduced in DAA10 (2017). The 3MP session aims to encourage more oral presentations and serves as a platform for researchers to highlight the impact of their research to a wider audience.
