At the 2010 World Aquaculture meeting in San Diego, the Fish Culture and Physiology sections of the American Fisheries Society co-sponsored a symposium titled “ Physiological Insights Towards Improving Fish Culture II”. This symposium consisted of 4 plenary lectures, 44 other presentations and a catered reception, and was made possible by generous support from a number of sponsors (Applied Biosystems, Aquatic EcoSystems, Fisher Scientific, Genome Atlantic, Loligo Systems,  and YSI). Scientists from 6 countries participated in the symposium, including 12 post-docs and students. The winner of the best student/post-doc award (sponsored by Loligo Systems) was Dr. Yoji Yamamoto from the School of Aquatic and Fisheries Sciences, University of Washington. The title of his presentation was “ Effect of feed restriction on ovarian development: changes in circulating hormone levels and the identification of differentially expressed ovarian genes.”
