IX Brazilian Crustacean Congress


The IX Brazilian Crustacean Congress will be held in Crato, Ceara, on November 6–9, 2016.  The theme is “Biodiversity of Crustacea: Evolution and Conservation Challenges”.  A webpage for the Congress is under construction and will soon be released with relevant information about the program and the region.


Shrimp News: Since the Congress is taking place in the state of Ceara, one the leading shrimp farming states in Brazil, hopefully there will be some papers on Brazilian shrimp farming or tours of shrimp farms.
