As a tribute to the late Dr. Sture Abrahamsson of Lund University Professor Goldman has instigated the Sture Abrahamsson lecture - to be held for the first time at this symposium. Hopefully, it will be a regular event at future symposia. Professor Goldman has invited me to give the first Sture Abrahamsson lecture and the ma in theme will be the work of Sture, its general background and the development of systems for culture of crayfish and prawns. The story is an interesting case study of how a country which lost an essential part of its productive stock of indigenous cray fish, succeeded in successfully replacing it with an exotic species. Sture's premature death in January 1973 put an end to his promising achievements in crayfish research and development. He had a great interest in the International Association of Astacoloqy. The organization was created in 1972 as a result of the first symposium on crayfish which he initiated. Durinq its first decade its activities have been kept closely in line with the program established by Sture and a few others.
