Australasian Aquaculture 2012 has been the premier aquaculture event in the Asia Pacific
region for almost a decade now.
The inaugural Australasian Aquaculture Conference and Trade Show, hosted by NSW
Fisheries took place in 2004 at the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre. Since then,
the event has been held biennially in capital cities near the major aquaculture production
regions of Australia.
Skretting Australasian Aquaculture 2012 will take place at the Melbourne Convention and
Exhibition Centre, the only 6 Star Green Star Convention Centre in the world. As usual the
Executive Committee is dedicated to offering new initiatives, a stimulating Program and
ample networking opportunities.
Australasian Aquaculture; now hosted and managed by the National Aquaculture
Council (NAC), and partnered by the World Aquaculture Society, Asian Pacific Chapter,
has continued to gain momentum across the years and looks set to continue to do so as it
heads towards World Aquaculture in 2014.
World Aquaculture will be hosted by the city of Adelaide. A city and state that is
renowned for the manufacture of high quality aquaculture produce.
The Adelaide Convention Centre was ecstatic to ‘Land Aquaculture’s Big Fish’, with the
four-day event estimated to see 3000 visitors and 200 exhibitors from around the globe in
With the 2012 theme of ‘The Next Ten Years’, the upcoming Conference and Trade Show
will focus on the future direction of the aquaculture industry over the next ten years and
will celebrate the industry’s environmentally sustainable credentials. Who knows what lays
at the other end of the aquaculture rainbow…maybe a ‘pot’ of seafood gold?
