Welcome to the press conference

The FAO Fisheries & Aquaculture Department, the European Commission and the AQUA2018 conference organizers are proudly announcing the AQUA2018 Press Conference

“Green Aquaculture” to tackle environmental challenges. Large-scale integrated farming practices in freshwater and marine aquaculture. Dominance of extractive aquaculture in coastal farming

Progress in Thai shrimp farming as catalyzer for developments in the Asian region. Role of Department of Fisheries in extension services and in implementation of Code of Conduct of Responsible Fisheries (GAPs, certification schemes, traceability of aquaculture products)
