A series of Aqua-Thailand:

Rationale:
Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic animals. Global aquaculture production set a new record in 2018 at 114.5 million metric tons live weight, with a total commercial value of $263.6 billion (the price of product available at the farm, excluding separately invoiced transportation or delivery costs) (FAO,2020). The total production was composed of 82.1 million tons of aquatic animals, 32.4 million tons of aquatic algae, and 26,000 tons of shells and pearls for ornamental purposes.

Aquaculture will continue to be the driving force behind growth in global fish production, continuing a decades-long trend. Aquaculture production is projected to reach 109 million metric tons in 2030, but the average annual growth rate of aquaculture is expected to slow from 4.6 percent in 2007-2018 to 2.3 percent in 2019-2030.

Despite the important role that aquaculture plays in the global economy, the industry faces various challenges ranging from lack of rapid genetic improvement for breeding programs, diseases outbreaks, and sustainable farming practices. One key strategy to overcome these challenges is to better understand the genomics and its functions.

The 3rd International Conference on Sustainable Aquaculture aims to cover a wide range of advanced research in aquatic genomics that can help addressing the challenges faced by the aquatic industry by focusing on the theme of Aquaculture Genetics. The conference theme encourages dialog and collaboration to share advances in aquatic genomic research, knowledge, and technology.

We invite interested professionals and researchers to present original papers and participate in the conference to respond to the theme of Aquaculture Genetics and link all these issues to sustainability and excellence in aquaculture production.
