Dear all our attendees of WAC 2023

Total fisheries and aquaculture production globally reached a record 214 million tonnes in 2020, comprising 178 million tonnes of aquatic animals and 36 million tonnes of algae, largely due to the growth of aquaculture, particularly in Asia. Sustainable aquaculture development remains critical to supply the growing demand for aquatic foods. FAO’s outlook for fisheries and aquaculture to 2030 projects an increase in production, consumption and trade, albeit at slower growth rates. Total production of aquatic animals is expected to reach 202 million tonnes in 2030, thanks mainly to sustained growth of aquaculture, projected to reach 100 million tonnes for the first time in 2027 and 106 million tonnes in 2030. World capture fisheries is projected to recover, increasing by 6 percent from 2020 to reach 96 million tonnes in 2030, as a result of improved resource management, underfished resources, and reduced discards, waste and losses.

The Russia-Ukraine war has impacted many industries created uncertainty for various projections but also opening the opportunities for the unexplored arenas. Atlantic Salmon & Shrimp are two candidate species among the global seafood sector driving huge trade. The announcement of an introduction of resource tax in Norway at aquaculture sector has created the chaos however government is firm to implement it from 1st Jan 2023. This may create the impact on temporary basis but may probably open up some hidden opportunities on longer perspectives considering sustainable domestic production development. India is the dominant producer of shrimp and though facing some tough situations presently, it will come out of the difficult scenario giving stability to the sector in coming time in spite of challenges from the competition shrimp producing countries.

Many large-scale companies in the segment showing seriousness towards implying ESG initiatives in the ongoing business and some are ahead of the curve. Slowly developing “Alternative Seafood” are expected to grow significantly in next 8-10 years & shall become visible across shelves in different markets. Seafood is one of the important proteins and shall continue to hold its importance in the global food supply chain. The sector will experience hit because of recession same as other sectors but will pass through it recovering in post-recession phase.

I hope the 3rd Edition of “World Aquaculture & Fisheries Conference” 2023 will witness one of the challenging & innovative brainstorming discussions & themes revolving around growing Global Fisheries & Aquaculture segment. I wish every speaker, audiences, participants a very best wishes to make the event grand success.

Yours Sincerely

Dear attendees of WAC 2023

I am honored and excited to have the opportunity to present alongside my esteemed colleagues.  This year my work has expanded to include an education partnership with the Ohio State University Extension Office and CropKing, Inc. as we teach agriculture in more schools with an emphasis on Science Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). We are working to engage teachers and their students by bringing agriculture into the classroom starting with simple hydroponic systems that have curricula that are easy to incorporate into existing goals and objectives. Aquaculture is introduced as the teachers become proficient in maintaining the systems and teaching the lessons. I look forward to sharing our successes and challenges in developing engaged young farmers and aquaculturists. 

Yours Sincerely

Welcome Message

Dear congress visitors

It is an honor to welcome you to this Congress which will hopefully allow you to approach aquaculture and fishing with a new vision, more modern and more respectful of the environment and its resources that are becoming increasingly rare, thanks to all the innovations you will discover there. I have also been invited to present innovative work on the contribution of aquaculture to the management of natural resources. Restoring degraded ecosystems, cleaning up environments, developing more environmentally friendly aquaculture and more responsible fishing are all challenges we face today. To answer this, more and more reflections and practices are turning to marine and coastal ecological engineering, solutions that are said to be "nature-based". This is what we will share throughout this event.

Yours Sincerely

Dear conference visitors

It’s a great honor for me to write a few welcome sentences to you. Biotechnology becomes more and more important in our lives nowadays. People have to face with unusual natural disasters, severe drought in the dry season and flooding in the rainy season made so much damages to human life and production. We have to deal with too many difficulties in our daily agricultural production, fishery, forestry, etc… Thus we should be more hurry to change our style of production, our lives… it means that nature based production and environment friendly lives should be taken into account in every activities of our lives. The aquaculture production needs to be prepared for climate change impacts in the coming years. We all have to be well prepared for negative impacts in the climate change era. I believe that we will have interesting discussion in next conference so as to come up with feasible solution and adaptation strategy.
