6th International Fisheries Symposium & Expo 2017

Fisheries & Aquaculture is the rapidly growing food producing sector around the globe. The growth rate in Pakistan is about 7.8% which is highest from Agriculture and Livestock sector. Total fish production is around 0.6 million metric tonnes. Aquaculture contributes about 0.1 million metric tonnes while rest is captured from inland and marine environment. Aquaculture like other Asian countries is rapidly growing in Pakistan and at present about 15000 fish farms covering an area of about 65000 acres is under fish farming. Two aqua feed companies are functional since 2013 and producing pelleted fish feed for carps, tilapia, shellfish and trout. Intensive aquaculture is also started by few progressive fish farmers in the country for culturing carps and tilapia. Tilapia hatchery is also functional since 2014 and producing all male tilapia progeny for aquaculture purpose in private sector.

Aquaculture sector has gained significant momentum during last 5 years. Both public and private sectors are moving towards significant achievements in production and human resource development. Department of Fisheries & Aquaculture, University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Lahore has the credit to start first undergraduate 4-yeardegree program in this discipline and some other short coursesto cater human resource demand of the sector since 2007.

The organizing committee invites you and your organization to participate in first International Conference on Innovative and Sustainable Aquaculture for Blue Revolution” & Expo to be held on 8-9 February, 2017.
