The ISTA 8 was successfully held in mid-October 2008. Almost 450 people attended the conference and tradeshow. The Proceedings, co-published by the AquaFish CRSP, included over 100 papers filling two volumes and 1500 pages.

The criteria for judging included applicability to sustainable aquaculture practices in developing countries, quality of the science, visual presentation of research on the poster, and on oral discussions with the judges.
