South Australia to host aquaculture conference
Australian Premier Mike Rann announced on Wednesday that Adelaide, South Australia, will host the World Aquaculture Symposium in 2014.
More than 3,000 visitors and 200 exhibitors from around the globe are expected to attend the four-day conference, which is organized by the World Aquaculture Society every four years. The event will include tours of South Australia’s fish-farm regions, including Eyre Peninsula.
“South Australian aquaculture is highly regarded around the world,” said Rann. “We are known for our high quality seafood, including southern bluefin tuna, kingfish and oysters, for our research and management expertise, and for our effective government-industry partnership to build aquaculture as a growing contributor to our economy.”
The 2010 World Aquaculture Symposium will be held in San Diego from 1 to 5 March.
