AQUACULTURE 2022 is going ahead as an in-person meeting. There will not be a virtual component available for the meeting. As the Covid situation changes all the time, we will not set final protocols until about the first week of February. There are no plans to cancel the meeting or make it virtual.
At the moment, the only restriction in San Diego is wearing masks indoors. Our protocols for AQUACULTURE 2022 will reflect the latest information and guidance from CDC, other experts and any State guidelines/restrictions. Potential requirements include wearing masks, distancing and sanitizer readily available. We will have masks and individual sanitizer available for anyone who wants them.
From our registrations and previous meeting, nearly 95% of our attendees are fully vaccinated which is the best precaution. We urge anyone attending the event to get fully vaccinated and boosted.
Most experts feel that the Omicron variant course will run about 6 weeks and start tapering off. So, we are hopeful that things will improve around the first of February. Already some restrictions around the world are being lifted.
We are looking forward to seeing you in San Diego!
Every three years, the Triennial is held somewhere in the United States. In 2022, the Triennial returns to sunny San Diego – one of America’s favorite cities.
THE TRIENNIAL IS THE LARGEST AQUACULTURE MEETING IN THE WORLD! The Triennial is the largest aquaculture conference and tradeshow held in the world with nearly 4,000 attendees from over 90 countries and even more countries are expected to have attendees at AQUACULTURE 2022. The Triennial combines the annual meetings of the Fish Culture Section of the American Fisheries Society, World Aquaculture Society, National Shellfisheries Association, and the National Aquaculture Association. In addition to the annual meetings of the main sponsors, look what else is happening at AQUACULTURE 2022!
The last Triennial was held in 2019 in New Orleans where it was pronounced a huge success by over 3,000 people who attended. Don’t miss this Triennial!
