World Aquaculture 2017, from 26th to 30th June 2017 in Cape Town, South Africa
Promotion of Mauritius as a high-standard platform for sustainable aquaculture
The Board of Investment will lead a delegation consisting of private sector operators to the World Aquaculture Conference in view of further consolidating the Mauritian aquaculture ecosystem. The World Aquaculture Society takes its annual conference to Africa for the first time. The spotlight will be on the potential of aquaculture to support economic development and attract investment in the world’s second fastest growing regional economy.
Themed “Sustainable Aquaculture – New Frontiers for Economic Growth – Spotlight on Africa”, World Aquaculture 2017 will bring together some 3,000 delegates representing the industry, academia and governments from the 100-Member countries of the World Aquaculture Society (WAS), in Cape Town, South Africa, from 26th to 30th June 2017. It will be an excellent opportunity to market the Mauritian investment platform.
The conference responds to a broad range of interests in aquaculture, while providing a learning, information-sharing and networking opportunity for entrepreneurs, business, scientists, researchers, technical specialists, educators, students, policy-makers and public officials.
The technical and scientific programme coupled with diverse parallel sessions will be complemented by a major international trade show, the AquaForum, which will be a great window of opportunity for producers from around the world to share information on challenges, techniques and new developments.
Aquaculture is increasingly important as an environmentally sustainable way to meet the global demand for fisheries produce, while reducing stress on wild catch.
