Global demand for seafood is now greater than the capacity of the sea to supply it. An expanding global population and the increasing people’s purchasing power are pressuring fishermen to fish more and causing some species to be overfished. As wild stocks decline, the demand for farmed fish is on the rise. Therefore, due to its sheer size and its impacts on the oceans, the aquaculture industry is an important part of the overall picture.
The Government of the Republic of Indonesia is hosting a “Workshop on Marine Aquaculture and Fish Health Management” on 21 – 28 November 2017 in Situbondo, East Java, Indonesia. The workshop aims to promote practices of information sharing and best practices learning on groupers production as an implementation of fisheries management. As the outcome, participants will be able to share experience, collaborate and build networking, cooperation and partnershipin groupers production as well as fish health management in the Indian Ocean region.
