Boston Seafood Show Session To Address Coming Seafood Shortage
A special conference program session, "Averting an Impending Seafood Shortage: Building on the Insights of GOAL 2010," will take place during the International Boston Seafood Show on March 21 from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, reports www.megafishnet.com with reference to Global Aquaculture Alliance.
An unanticipated surge in per-capita seafood consumption in Asia is leading to unprecedented demand that can only be met by aquaculture. The session, sponsored by the Global Aquaculture Alliance and Diversified Business Communications, will provide strategic views on aquaculture supply and demand around the world. It will further explore ideas on how the varied elements of the aquaculture industry can work together to prepare for a future with much higher seafood demand.
Dr. Michael Rubino, manager of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Aquaculture Program; Dr. George Chamberlain, president of the Global Aquaculture Alliance; and speakers from China, Malaysia and Chile will address potential aquaculture production changes, while international seafood buyers help clarify the coming needs. Session attendees will also learn about new pro-aquaculture policies in the United States.
Seating is limited for this event. To attend, participants must hold a Gold or Silver Passport as part of their registration. Details on the full conference program and registration are available online at www.bostonseafood.com/11/public/dbc_register.aspx.
