The 1st annual International Conference & Exposition of the African Chapter of the World Aquaculture Society (AFRAQ2020) will be held in Alexandria, Egypt from November 28 to December 1, 2020. The conference will highlight some of the latest aquaculture research, innovations and investments to underpin continued growth of the aquaculture sector in Africa. The event will also be comprise of a scientific forum (oral/poster presentations), trade exhibition, industry forums, workshops, student events, receptions and other organized meetings. Keynote speakers from Africa and beyond are expected.
The 1st Aquaculture Africa Conference will be held one year after the establishment of the African Chapter of World Aquaculture Society (WAS). As the founding gold sponsor of the WAS’s African Chapter, Aller Aqua will also sponsor the chapter’s first official event.
With two factories on the continent, Aller Aqua has heavily invested in African aquaculture and has a dedicated feeding range for Tilapia, TIL-PRO, that is sold all over the continent. The formulation is targeted to meet the needs of tilapia under different farming methods and is produced using locally sourced raw materials of the highest quality. An increasing number of tilapia farmers in Africa are using the popular feeding range, which allows shorter production cycles, consistent fish sizes, improved FCR and better economic value.
The company has been supporting the development of aquaculture in Africa through seminars, events and supporting new and established farmers. Aller Aqua is also engaged in the local community and supports initiatives thatt make a positive difference.
“It is very exciting that the WAS African Chapter has decided on hosting its first event in Alexandria,” said CEO of Aller Aqua Egypt, Hussien Mansour. “I am proud to be on the steering committee and happy that the event will be hosted in my country. We produce high quality fish feed for the African market, and being involved with the WAS African Chapter is a good addition to the ongoing support we provide to promote African aquaculture.”
