Webinar on the Regional Aquaculture Reviews and State of World Aquaculture 2020, 26-29 October 2020


Originally planned for October 2020, the Global Conference on Aquaculture (GCA) Millennium +20 was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The revised dates are now 22–27 September 2021 in Shanghai, China.

Ahead of the GCA, a series of webinars will be organized on various topics relevant to the sustainable development of aquaculture. The first of these will be a presentation of advanced (pre-final) versions of six Regional Aquaculture and the State of World Aquaculture 2020, which will be held during the week of 26–29 October 2020, the original dates of the GCA.

These reviews provide up-to-date information on the status and trends of the sector, at regional and global levels, developed from national, regional and global datasets, supplemented with expert opinion and literature review. The reviews can be of pertinent interest and use to government authorities, international and regional organizations, policy-makers, aquaculture farmers and other aquaculture value chain actors, investors, civil society organizations, academia and training institutions, as well as other interested stakeholders.

For each review, a presentation of key messages will be followed by a panel discussion. Question and answer sessions will provide opportunity for interested parties to comment on the reviews, ahead of their final publication. Relevant documentation will be posted online in advance of the webinars.
