Presentation of the State of World Aquaculture and Regional Aquaculture Reviews 2020

Originally planned for October 2020, the Global Conference on Aquaculture 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 The State of World Aquaculture 2020 and six Regional Reviews, 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 national governments, regional organizations, policy-makers, aquaculture farmers and other aquaculture value chain actors, investors, civil society organizations, research and training institutions as well as the general public.

These webinars will be convened by FAO, in partnership with the Network of Aquaculture Centres in Asia-Pacific (NACA) and the World Fisheries Trust. For each review, a presentation of key messages is followed by a panel discussion. Question and answer sessions provide opportunity for interested parties to comment on the reviews, ahead of their final publication.
