The Global Aquaculture Alliance invites professionals across the seafood value chain to engage in the responsible aquaculture movement at GOAL 2013, based at the Hotel Pullman Paris Montparnasse in Paris. This year's theme, "Join the Journey," recognizes that responsible aquaculture is not a destination but a journey. Many of the sustainable seafood goals set years ago are now becoming standard industry practices.
The GOAL 2013 conference program will feature three half-day sessions of presentations and discussions, providing attendees detailed, up-to-date information on the farmed seafood value chain, including supply and demand forecasts, environmental and social challenges, investment opportunities and consumption trends. Throughout the event, dozens of speakers and panelists will share their thoughts on the future of responsible aquaculture.
Many of the world's leading farmed seafood species will be covered, including:
- White and black tiger shrimp
- Atlantic salmon
- Seabass, sea bream
- Emerging species
The feed fish supply and the need to increase the amount of sustainably caught feed fish will also be discussed. Additional program sessions will ask how Africa can benefit from increasing its aquaculture output. The event will also focus on the European marketplace and what the aquaculture sector can do to better meet the needs of discerning European buyers and consumers.
