The special day will take place on September 28 and will address the topic “International Processes and their Implications to the European Aquaculture Industry”.
The annual Aquaculture Europe event, organized by the European Aquaculture Society, will take place in Rimini, Italy, from September 27-30, 2022.
Apart from the scientific plenary and parallel sessions that make up the conference, several special sessions and workshops are being planned, such as FAO “Special Day”. It will take place on September 28 and will address the topic “International Processes and their Implications to the European Aquaculture Industry”.
The FAO is engaged in global actions that aim at assisting its member countries in developing sustainable food industries and securing access to a healthy diet for all. Access to applied production innovations, appropriate governance and support policies along with economic and market forces play an important role in the current and future development of any specific food industry at the national, regional and global level. FAO provides the global discussion and knowledge-sharing platform along with tools and guidelines that will enable countries to move the aquatic food production industries in producing and distributing their products by ensuring that environmental, social and economic sustainability issues are fully and globally met.
The FAO Special Day will focus on a number of relevant international processes and discuss their implications on the development of the European aquaculture sector. These include:
- The global processes on sustainable aquaculture: What does it mean to European stakeholders? moderated by Austin Stankus and Matthias Halwart.
- Genetic resources in aquaculture: Managing them better, moderated by Graham Mair and Daniela Lucente.
- Markets for aquaculture products: Recent changes and trends, moderated by Marcio Castro de Souza.
- Small in scale, big in value: Celebrating the International Year of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture, moderated by Alessandro Lovatelli and Austin Stankus.
