14/05/2015: FENACAM/LACQUA/SARA 2015 in Fortaleza – the biggest event in South America
The Latin American and Caribbean Aquaculture Conference (LACQUA´15) this year is being organized together with the Feira Nacional do Camarão 2015 (FENACAM´15) and South American Regional Aquaculture (SARA´15)

Following the previous successful conferences held in Brazil (World Aquaculture 2003, in Salvador, and World Aquaculture 2011, in Natal), the World Aquaculture Society, its Latin American and Caribbean Chapter (WAS/LACC) and the Associação Brasileira de Criadores de Camarão (ABCC - link in Portuguese) are joining forces to prepare a high quality conference and an updated producer program in Fortaleza, CE, Brazil, on November 16-19, 2015. 
FENACAM15/LACQUA15/SARA15 will bring together aquaculture farmers, entrepreneurs and experts from the entire Latin American region and the world. In addition to a scientific conference, a strong program dedicated to stakeholders and the industry sector is being organised. Over 150 booths are expected in the international trade show, and parallel symposia will gather the productive sector to discuss the technical and practical advances that are guiding the development of aquaculture and the foundations to overcome their challenges. 

The organizing team, headed by ABCC and the LACC-WAS, expects more than 3000 professionals from the aquaculture sector to be present at Fortaleza. The participants will be able to attend several keynote lectures offered by well-known experts from around the world, as well as to exchange research ideas and to analyze the business options of an important array of worldwide companies that will be present. 

FENACAM15/LACQUA15/SARA15 will bring together LACQUA technical sessions, the XII International Shrimp Farm Symposium, the XII International Aquaculture Trade Show, the IX International Aquaculture Symposium, the 3rd Tilapia Economic Forum and a Seafood Festival. It will truly bring together everyone involved in the aquaculture sector.

This year´s motto: 'Science & Industry Joining Forces to Meet Seafood Demands' will, more than ever, bring the message and the expertise of well-known international speakers to the point of need and show how to integrate this knowledge base with the challenges faced by the aquaculture sector to maintain its growth through innovative science-based solutions.
