World Brackishwater Aquaculture Conference

BRAQCON 2019 will provide a unique platform for people involved in brackishwater aquaculture and fisheries, nationally and internationally. Sharing of experience and research advancements in the frontier areas would facilitate maximum utilisation, cultivation, conservation and development of aquatic resources. The conference would elicit interest among young researchers and scientists to undertake studies and research to further open up new blue growth avenues for a better world.

Fisheries and aquaculture are expected to contribute significantly to the food security and nutrition for the projected global population of 9.7 billion by 2050. Brackishwater aquaculture, particularly shrimp farming, is one of the most dynamic and fastest growing food producing sectors contributing substantially to the economy and sustainability of coastal communities worldwide. Sustainable development of aquaculture, especially brackishwater aquaculture, should be planned in harmony with the ecosystem that supports farming systems.

BRAQCON 2019 is expected to “THINK GLOBALLY” for development of aquaculture with strong R&D inputs, and “ACT LOCALLY” for implementing responsible fisheries and aquaculture.
