Detailed Selling Lead Description

Subject: Global Conference on Aquaculture 2010, 22-25 September 2010,


Phuket, Thailand

Aquaculture has grown over the past decade to where it now provides nearly 50
percent of global supplies of fish as human food. A Global Conference on
Aquaculture 2010 will take place in Phuket, Thailand, with more than 700
participants from 60 countries, to evaluate where the sector stands today and face
upcoming challenges and opportunities.

Important issues to be discussed will be the ways to reduce and mitigate the
environmental impact and to improve governance of the sector while further
increasing its contribution to food security, economic development and poverty
alleviation. The conference will hear about technological advancement over the
last 10 years in such areas as water treatment, new farming systems and species,
health management, improved information and communication, and fish feed with
substantially reduced fishmeal content. Despite good progress, much more needs
to be done in priority areas, the conference will hear.

Since the sector already provides over 30 million jobs worldwide, governments are
increasingly seeing aquaculture as an important element in rural development and
investment strategies. However, regions like Africa are being left behind.

Genetics in aquaculture will be a hot topic. Some successes include the use of
“induced triploidy” in large rainbow trout to induce continued growth while the fish
remain in prime condition. On the other hand, the genetic management of
aquaculture production has frequently been inadequate which results in a decline
in production due to inbreeding, genetic drift and uncontrolled hybridization.
