The significance of aquaculture in providing high-quality food and nutrition to the world's growing population cannot be overstated. We know aquaculture continues to be the fastest-growing food production sector globally, and that seafood is the world’s most globally trade food. Despite all the challenges the need for food security and nutrition is a heavy burden and it is only by coming together, meeting new people, listening to specialists, engaging in discussions, and sharing ideas that we will meet the demand.
The expansion of aquaculture, especially in Asia, at a rapid pace has brought about several challenges that have required long-term solutions. The region has witnessed exponential growth in aquaculture, and we have seen how this has been supported in variable ways by governments and communities. 14-17 May 2024 is the opportune time for the global aquaculture community to converge at Aqua Farm 2024 on the Gold Coast, Australia and promote lessons learned along with expanding your network.
The conference will also offer the opportunity as a premier interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss the latest innovations, trends, concerns, as well as practical challenges encountered and adopted solutions in the fields of aquaculture technology. Education is a major key to advancement and Aqua Farm 2024 recognises the importance.
There will be many areas of innovation at Aqua Farm 2024 with Round Table discussions, dedicated Q&A sessions, ensuring discussions on many topics and providing opportunities for active participation. Additionally, there will be captivating networking opportunities for all attendees through activities pre and post conference times and given the early high interest, we anticipate that the event will be popular, so we we encourage you to register early.
