This annual event will incorporate the Australiasian Aquaculture industry and will see several thousand attendess from around the world converge on the city of Darwin
Contributions to developing new and existing ideas to stimulate this vital industry are welcome. With almost half of the world’s consumption of seafood coming from farms, aquaculture is playing an increasingly important role in meeting the challenge of global food security.
World Aquaculture 2023 (WA2023) will be an opportunity for the international aquaculture community - academics, industry researchers, market and industry analysts, government offi cials, policy makers and industry representatives to present their work and exchange ideas and develop a vision for the future of the aquaculture industry as we focus on the theme of “Supporting Strength in Aquaculture”
An event not to be missed - WA2023 will offer a chance to gauge the sector’s progress, whilst we discuss and debate the issues, ideas, mechanisms and hands-on practical approaches towards building a better industry. In addition there will be ample opportunity to network during both structured and free-fl owing events.
On behalf of the WA2023 Steering Committee, we look forward to seeing you in Darwin.
