While modern aquaculture has been around for the past 40 years, it has not developed at the speed expected of an industry that has the enormous responsibility of creating an alternative source of seafood to the dwindling capture fisheries. One of the major contributing factors is the lack of direction, coordination and technology development to propel the industry forward The Aquaculture Roundtable Series 2011 (TARS) seeks to address these challenges by providing a neutral platform for all stakeholders, from the public and private sectors to come together to discuss, deliberate and formulate a clear strategy to take Asia’s aquaculture industry to the next level.
The first in the series, TARS will be held in Singapore from August 17-18, 2011 and will focus on Aquaculture Feeds and Nutrition. Internationally renowned experts in aquaculture technology and nutrition will speak on a range of topics that will:
- Review the present status and trends for aquaculture development in Asia;
- Address emerging issues in aquaculture development;
- Assess opportunities and challenges for future aquaculture development;
- Build consensus on advancing aquaculture as a global, sustainable and competitive food production sector.
