Farming the Waters for People and Food  - 9-12, June, 2010, Bangkok, Thailand

In 1976, FAO held the first ever global conference on aquaculture, the Kyoto Conference, which explored opportunities for aquaculture development and triggered the recognition of aquaculture as a significant food production sector. Ten years after the millennium conference, with aquaculture now providing nearly 50 percent of global food fish supplies, FAO in partnership with NACA and the Thai Department of Fisheries, are organizing the Global Conference on Aquaculture 2010, to evaluate where the sector stands today and face the challenges and opportunities.

Plenary lectures together with six regional reviews and one global synthesis will set the scene for six thematic sessions and associated expert panel discussions on key aspects of aquaculture development and management in the coming decades. The conference will provide a global forum to build consensus to advance sustainable aquaculture development and contribute to the Millennium Development Goals. Have your say on the future of aquaculture development.
