We are happy to invite you again to join in The 6th International Conference of Aquaculture Indonesia 2016 (ICAI 2016), which will be one of the most significant regional or global aquaculture events yet staged in Indonesia. This brochure is intended to encourage you to submit scientific papers during the conference or simply to be a participating member of the audience in the multiple sessions of the conference to gain the latest information about aquaculture developments of Indonesia especially and around the world in general. ICAI 2016 returns to be one of the favorite aquaculture meetings in Indonesia. This is the 6th event of ICAI which starting this year becomes the annual international forum for the aquaculture community - academics, researchers, students, market and industry analysts, government officials, policy makers and industry representatives organized and hosted by Indonesian Aquaculture Society (MAI). This conference is designed to encourage the exchange of ideas, information and knowledge between scientists and industry personnels on important issues in aquaculture and how finding solutions and supporting to the industry. This conference will be a meeting forum and current information sharing between scientists and business actors in aquaculture coming from all over places in Asian Pacific and other countries. The theme for ICAI 2016 is “Innovations In Aquaculture Technology For Suistainable Aquaculture In The Future”. Global food demand increases 70% up to 2050 due to an increasing of the population. Economic crisis causing high unemployed people and high food demand has positioned aquaculture becoming an important industry sector as food supply and economic mover. Aquaculture is the world’s fastest growing food production sector by about 11 percent annually. Aquaculture in Indonesia is one of the most feasible means answering the expanding demand for fish, looking at the leveling off in the capture fisheries production and increasing demand for seafoods. Indonesia has a potential to be the greatest aquaculture producer in the world (67.7 millions MT per year) consisting of marine aquaculture sector (47 millions MT), brackishwater aquaculture sector (15 millions MT), and freshwater aquaculture sector (5.7 millions MT). However, this high potency is just utilized up to 11% and this will be a challenge to trigger for the Indonesia aquaculture stakeholders to be the greatest in the future. This high potency (population and fisheries resources) will result in attracting overseas aquaculture stakeholders to invest and to be the players in Indonesia A sustainable aquaculture management is needed in Indonesia, including the development of infrastructure, investment, friendly environment, production and human resources. Future global aquaculture industry growth especially in Indonesia will be severely restricted if the aquaculture industry remains reliant on fishmeal and fish oil. So that in the future, aquaculture industry must reduce reliance on fishmeal and fish oil as a key ingredient in aquafeeds. A focus on looking for new sources omega-3 will be very important in developing sustainable aquafeeds. The next 10 years, Indonesia will face some great challenges for the sustainable development of aquaculture industry. This conference would allow us to look at many threats and opportunities and consider how to best manage the sustainable development of the global aquaculture industry especially toward sustainable future aquaculture industry in Indonesia. There will be plenary sessions and topics-based parallel class sessions for a two-days of the conference. The class sessions consist of (1) Diseases & Aquaculture Sustainability; (2) Aquaculture Management & Technology; (3) Feed Management & Nutrition; (4) Genetics & Breeding; (5) Aquaculture Business & Marketing (shrimp, finfish, seaweed, eel), and (6) Farmers Day & Applied Technology Forum. Due to limited presentation time slots, so only the selected papers will be orally presented, however other accepted papers will be presented in a poster exhibition. Indonesian aquaculture associations will actively involve in Aquaculture Business Class Sessions. International and regional experts in aquaculture will be invited to deliver keynote addresses during the conference. The names of the invited speakers will be finalized soon and will be posted in the website (icai.aquaculture-mai.org). We extend an invitation to present your research results at the poster exhibition or parallel class discussion sessions. We hope that you will find out an interesting conference program and a fascinating exposition. Finally, we encourage you that you don’t want to miss The 6th ICAI 2016 ! We look forward to seeing you on October 27th-29th, 2016 in Bali–Indonesia.
