Scientific Session

Sustainable Aquaculture:

Aquaculture is currently playing, and will continue to play, a big part in boosting global fish production and in meeting rising demand for fishery products. Aquaculture is projected to be the prime source of seafood as demand grows from the global middle class and wild capture fisheries approach their maximum take.  Sustainable aquaculture is a dynamic concept and the sustainability of an aquaculture system will vary with species, location, societal norms and the state of knowledge and technology. The aim of organizing the aquaculture conference is to supply exposure to technologies and international tie-ups and to supply data regarding recent trends in aquaculture.

Topics to be covered:

·         Algaculture

·         Fish hatcheries

·         Shrimp farming

·         Sustainable seafood

·         Commercial Aquaculture

 Aquaculture Engineering:

According to aquaculture conferences, aquaculture engineering is the branch of agricultural engineering that studies cultured aquatic species and the production systems used in their culture. Study, research and development in this area ranges from low intensity man-made pond systems to highly intensive recirculating aquaculture systems. Species cultured in these systems range from tilapia to salmon and can also include shellfish or seaweed. Ponds make up a large portion of aquaculture production systems, along with sea cages, and tank systems.

Topics to be covered:

·         Offshore aquaculture

According to Aquaculture meeting discussions, aquaponics is the combination of aquaculture and hydroponics (the soil-less growing of plants) that grows fish and plants together in one integrated system. The fish waste provides an organic food source for the plants, and the plants naturally filter the water for the fish. The aim of organizing aquaculture conference is to supply exposure to technologies regarding the trends in aquaculture and marine biology.

Aquaculture Nutrition:

According to aquaculture conference discussions, at a global level, aquaculture is one of the fastest growing food production sectors (9.6 per cent/yr in the last decade), a fact that will ultimately change the way that fish is perceived as food. A key element of this observation is the change in the supply opportunities for fish and fish products from a wild source to a cultured one. Aquaculture conference gives information about the rapid growth in aquaculture production which made the sector important to the economy of many developing countries, and it has become either an important source of supply, or the main supplier, in the case of some products.

Topics to be covered:

·         Forms of Nutrients

·         Sources of Nutrients

Of the anticancer compounds extracted so far, the marine algae contribute 65.63%, the mangroves 28.12%, and the bacteria 6.25%. Owing to a diverse chemical ecology, the marine organisms especially marine flora have a great promise for providing potent, cheaper, and safer anticancer drugs, which deserve an extensive investigation. According to the American Cancer Society, the global burden is expected to grow as 27 million new cancer cases and 17.5 million cancer deaths simply due to the growth and aging of the population by 2050.

Market Analysis

Introduction:

Aquaculture is the fastest-growing food production system in the world due to the lack of naturally available varieties of fisheries harvested in natural environments. The increasing awareness of the health benefits and nutritional value associated with seafood has accelerated its consumption. Aquatic products, especially farmed salmon and shrimps, are highly nutritious sources of food, consisting of important proteins, vitamins A, B, D, and Niacin, minerals like iodine, iron, phosphorus, and zinc. These foods also have a significant source of Omega-3 fatty acids such as docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA).

America Region:

Marine aquaculture in the United States contributes to seafood supply, supports commercial fisheries, restores habitat and at-risk species, and maintains economic activity in coastal communities and at working waterfronts in every coastal state. Aquaculture also supports commercial and recreational fisheries. About 40% of the salmon caught in Alaska and 80-90% in the Pacific Northwest start their lives in a hatchery - contributing over 270 million dollars to the commercial fishery.

Europe Region:

In Europe, aquaculture accounts for about 20% of fish production and directly employs some 85 000 people. The sector is mainly composed of SMEs or micro-enterprises in coastal and rural areas. Europe aquaculture is renowned for its high quality, sustainability and consumer protection standards. Europe overall output has been more or less constant in volume since 2000 whereas global production, at the same time, has been growing by nearly 7% per year.

Asia Pacific Region:

According to official statistics, production in a number of Asia-Pacific fisheries peaked in the last two decades and is now stable or declining, depending on the area being fished. Highly intensive fishing, especially in trawl fisheries, targeting shrimp and other demersal species has also led to a change in catch composition. The share in landings of fast growing and short-lived species and the catch of small-sized juveniles of commercially important fish species is steadily increasing (so-called “fishing down the food chain”).

Middle East region:

With seven seas surrounding the region, including the Mediterranean, the Persian Gulf, the Gulf of Aden, the Red Sea, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea and the Arabian Sea, the Middle East is not short of sources for fresh seafood. However, total production in the region amounts to only 2.17% of the total worldwide production. Capture fisheries are characterized by a large number of small-scale fishers, with it estimated that the small-scale sector provides about 80 to 90% of the total landings.
