16/06/2015: FENACAM15 & SARA15 & LACQUA15

The Latin American and Caribbean Aquaculture Conference (LACQUA´15) this year is being organised together with the Feira Nacional do Camarão 2015 (FENACAM´15) and the South American Regional Aquaculture (SARA´15).

Following the successful previous 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) are joining forces to prepare a high quality conference and an updated producer program in Fortaleza, CE, Brazil, during November 16-19, 2015.

The FENACAM15 & LACQUA15 & SARA15 will bring together aquaculture farmers, entrepreneurs and experts of 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 organising team, headed by ABCC and the LACC-WAS, expects more than 3000 professionals of the aquaculture sector to be present in the meeting in 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 analyse business options of an important array of worldwide companies that will be present.

The FENACAM15 & LACQUA15 & SARA15 will congregate 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. In that way, there will be a truly get together for everyone involved with the aquaculture sector.

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