Detailed Selling Lead Description



It is with great pleasure and excitement that we announce that on November 7,
2018, all requirements for formation of the African Chapter, WAS were completed
and the WAS Board voted the African Chapter into official status. This result
follows much hard work by many people and organizations after the African
Chapter concept developed initial momentum during World Aquaculture 2017 in
Cape Town, South Africa.

The African Chapter will quickly develop its official organization structure and
begin to operate throughout the whole of the African continent. The initial
operation will be guided by the interim Board of Directors:
The Interim Board President is Dr. Sherif Sadek from Egypt
Dr. John Walakira from Uganda is the Interim President Elect
Dr. Flower Msuya from Tanzania is the Interim Treasurer
Zukiswa Nkhereanye is the Interim Secretary.
Blessing Mapfumo is the AC Secretariat.
Khalid Salie, Fatima Samodien and Zukiswa Nkhereanye served on the AC
Steering Committee and worked closely with many others to put together the
bylaws and petition to form the Chapter.

A very import part of the future success of the African Chapter is the belief and
support of Aller Aqua for the African Chapter. Aller Aqua has agreed to support the
African Chapter, World Aquaculture Society (WAS) as a FOUNDING GOLD
SPONSOR, thereby contributing to the activities of the Chapter and Society, and
specifically to the development of its World Aquaculture activities in the African
region for a period of 3 years. Aller Aqua will sponsor the Chapter activities as well
as future workshops and meetings.

“It is important for us to continue to have a positive impact on aquaculture globally.
Aquaculture is experiencing significant growth, particularly in Africa, and it is vital
to support initiatives which help ensure that growth of aquaculture is facilitated all
over Africa. This is done through research as well as sharing knowledge. Besides
our own activities, we can help achieve this through our support of the WAS
African Chapter and their efforts. I am pleased that WAS have chosen to focus on
aquaculture in Africa and through the African Chapter recognize the large diversity
on the continent. We experience it when meeting with customers from the various
African countries” Niels Lundgaard, Aller Aqua’s Commercial Director for Africa

The African Chapter has begun participating in other African aquaculture events
and will begin planning workshops and meetings organized by the African
Chapter. The African Chapter will do whatever it can to promote the growth of
aquaculture in Africa!
