INFOFISH World Shrimp Trade Conference unveils line-up of speakers
April 5, 2022

Themed Recovery through resilience and innovation, INFOFISH World Shrimp Trade Conference and Exhibition will take place from June 8-10, 2022 and will be chaired by Jose Antonio Camposanto, executive president of National Chamber of Aquaculture Ecuador. 

“Throughout its history, the global shrimp industry has faced challenges of all kinds, from health and environmental-related challenges to logistical issues and financial crises. Despite all these difficulties, it is a highly competitive industry because its products are marketed worldwide. Today, the pandemic and other international phenomena, such as the performance of the economy and others like global warming, represent a new paradigm for the shrimp industry that must be approached with an open mind and enough creativity to transform these challenges into solutions that allows us to grow sustainably.”

The keynote speaker will be Audun Lem, deputy director of Fisheries and Aquaculture Division FAO HQ, Rome Italy. Lem will address the impact of both COVID-19 and the ongoing war in Ukraine and the lessons these hold for the industry, in particular for future resilience.
