Due to the devastating impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic which has resulted in lockdowns, travel restrictions, bans on mass gatherings etc, the World Aquaculture Society (WAS) and its key stakeholders in Egypt have decided to postpone the Aquaculture Africa 2021 (AFRAQ21) to next year (2021).

The new dates are now 11-14 December 2021, at the same venue: Alexandrina Bibliotheca, Alexandria City, Egypt. WAS understands that this rescheduling, which is in line with Egyptian health and safety regulations, is of the best interest for the safety and well-being of our members, delegates, exhibitors and all other parties concerned.

Thank you,
John Cooksey
Executive Director
