Farming the Waters for People and Food - Proceedings of the Global Conference on Aquaculture 2010



The Global Conference on Aquaculture 2010 brought

together a wide-range of experts and important

stakeholders and reviewed the present status and trends

in aquaculture development, evaluated the progress made

in the implementation of the 2000 Bangkok Declaration

and Strategy, addressed emerging issues relevant to

aquaculture development, assessed opportunities and

challenges for future aquaculture development and

built consensus on advancing aquaculture as a global,

sustainable and competitive food production sector. This

volume, a yet another joint effort of FAO and NACA, brings

you the outcome of the Global Conference on Aquaculture

2010, the much needed clear and comprehensive

technical information on how aquaculture could be

mobilized to alleviate global poverty and improve food and

nutrition security in the coming decades.
