Why Dubai, UAE..?

A fast-growing population has created a huge gap between demand and supply of seafood in the UAE, slanting the balance in favour of unsustainable imports. Statistics from the Ministry of Environment and Water reveal that in 2013, the UAE’s fish catch stood at 73,203 tonnes, but consumption of seafood reached around 210,000 tonnes, leaving a deficit of 136,797 tonnes. This is not just an examination for the UAE; it is a universal problem. Food intake, as with other countries, has enlarged compared to production. The UAE seafood demand and source gap is growing but we goal to bridge it through aqua farming”. And new aquaculture expertise was progressively applied to a growing number of species. So The World Aqua congress 2017 take a stage to notifies consumers about the upcoming probable of aquaculture and fishing and risk management and we aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to interchange and share their experiences and research results.

On behalf of the committee, we welcome you to join the upcoming International meeting on Aquaculture & Fisheries during Dec 06-07, 2017 at Dubai, UAE.

Track 1: Aquaculture Technology

Aquaculture is also known as aqua farming. The farming of aquatic organisms like fishes, aquatic plants, molluscus, crustaceans etc., is known as aquaculture. It involves the advancement, enlargement and multiplication of flora and fauna which are found to grow in aquatic environment. It is also involved in the development of seafood. Aquaculture is a form of agriculture that includes the husbandry, breeding and publicising of aquatic organisms. Aquaculture shares many resemblances in concept to many land based agriculture industries such as cattle farming and many of the same controlling techniques are used in aquaculture. Like more traditional methods of agriculture the goal of aquaculture is to maximize production at a minimal cost to maintain a profit margin.

Track 2: Aquaculture Nutrition

Freshwater fish species account for nearly 50.00% of the world's aquaculture production, with tilapia, carp and catfish representing the major culture species. These species are cultivated in numerous countries as they have adaptable feeding habits, respond well to a wide variety of culture technologies and are well recognized by consumers. All three species can be simply reared on commercially formed floating feeds. Feeds not only characterize one of the main production costs and source of nutrients but they are also the main source of impurities that contribute to poor water quality and disease occurrences.

Track 3: Biotechnology & genetics in Aquaculture

Biotechnology is permanently related not only to aquaculture but also to marketable and recreational fisheries, because of its positive and negative effects on these resources. A brief account of the history of genetic biotechnology use in aquaculture and fisheries. The development of worldwide aquaculture has been continued and quick, and the explosion of research in genetic biotechnology has made important impact on aquaculture and fisheries, although potential for much greater progress exists. Aquaculture and Fisheries Biotechnology: Genetic methods covers topics essential to the study of fish genetics, including qualitative and quantitative traits, crossbreeding, inbreeding, genetic drift, hybridization, selection programs, polyploidy, genomics and cloning.

Track 4: Fisheries Farming

Fish farming or pisciculture involves rising fish commercially in tanks or enclosures, usually for food. It is the major form of aquaculture; however more methods may drop under mariculture.

Track 5: Fish Biology

Aquatic immunology deals with disease problems describe the major single cause of regulatory losses in aquaculture. In 1988, catfish producers lost over 100 million fish value nearly $11 million. Estimates for 1989 forecast even major losses. The trout industry reported 1988 losses of over 20 million fish worth over $2.5 million. No data are avail on losses sustained by producers of shellfish. Bacterial infections create the most important source of disease problems in all the varied types of production. Gram-negative bacteria cause epizootics in almost all cultured species. Fungal diseases produce the second most crucial source of losses, above all in the culture of crustaceans and salmon. External protozoan parasites are responsible for the loss of vast numbers of fry and fingerling fin fishes and are a source of epizootics from all young shellfish.

Track 6: Environmental Oceanography

Fisheries oceanography can be mostly defined as study of the communication between marine fish and their environments through various life-history stages. Traditional fisheries organization methods estimate population abundance stages as a function of the number of reproducing adults without environmental or environmental effort, but the field of fisheries oceanography has provided a framework to calculate enrolment and define harvest schemes within an ecosystem context. By looking for to describe mechanistic relationships between fish species and their surrounding oceanic habitats, the field of fisheries oceanography aims to bring a solid understanding of fish behaviour, people dynamic forces, and biography with an ecosystem perspective. Oceanography is an interdisciplinary science that includes geology, biology, chemistry, and physics which together is been used to study the entire ocean, i.e., from the narrow coastal areas to the deepest trenches.

Track 7:Natural resource Management

Natural resource management deals with working the way in which people and normal landscapes network. It brings together plot use planning, water managing, biodiversity conservation, and the future sustainability of productions like agriculture, mining, tourism, fisheries and forestry. It identifies that people and their livelihoods trust on the healthiness and efficiency of our landscapes, and their explorations as factors of the land play a serious role in maintaining this health and productivity.

Natural resource management specially focuses on a scientific and technical accepting of resources and ecology and the life-associating capability of those properties. Environmental management is also like to natural resource management. In educational contexts, the sociology of natural resources is thoroughly connected to, but distinct from, natural resource management.

Track 8: Microbial Oceanography

Microbes are the greatest abundant lifeforms in the ocean, and as such have an exact significant role in many ecosystems. New machineries are permitting scientists to dig deeper than ever before into the arrangement and activity of microbial groups.

Track 9: Marine and Coastal Biodiversity

The oceans cover 70% of the planet’s surface area, and marine and coastal surroundings cover different habitats that support a plenty of marine life. Life in our oceans creates a third of the oxygen that we breathe, offers a valuable source of protein and regulates total weather change. Some examples of marine and coastal habitats include mangrove forests; coral reefs; sea grass beds; estuaries in coastal areas; hydrothermal outlets; and seamounts and soft filtrates on the ocean floor a few kilometres below the surface.

Track 10: Marine Biology

The study of marine biology contains a wide variation of corrections such as astronomy, biological oceanography, cellular biology, chemistry, ecology, geology, meteorology, molecular biology, physical oceanography and zoology and the original science of aquatic management biology difficulties on several on-going mechanical corrections such as aquatic ecology, biogeography, zoology, botany, genetics, fisheries biology, anthropology, economics and law.

Track 11: Fisheries Management

Fisheries management draws on fisheries science in order to discover ways to guard fishery resources so sustainable exploitation is possible. Latest fisheries management is regularly referred to as an organizational scheme of suitable management guidelines based on defined objectives and a mix of management means to implement the rules, which are situate in place by a organization of monitoring control and surveillance.

Track 12: Salmon Aquaculture

The aquaculture of salmons is the farming and gathering of salmons under measured conditions for equally profitable and recreational purposes. Salmonids (mainly salmon and steelhead), along with carp, are the two utmost significant fish groups in aquaculture. The most usually commercially cultivated salmonid is the Atlantic salmon. In the U.S. Chinook salmon and rainbow trout are the most commonly farmed salmonids for recreational and subsistence fishing over the National Fish Hatchery System. In Europe, brown trout are the utmost regularly raised fish for recreational exchanging. Commonly farmed non-salmonid fish groups include tilapia, catfish, sea bass and bream.

Track 13: Fisheries &livestock production

Fisheries are defined as a business tool where the trade or business devoted to the catching, handling, or marketing of fish or other aquatic animals or a place where fish or other aquatic animals are caught. Livestock is a noun where the horses, cattle, sheep, and other useful animals kept or elevated on a farm or spread. Livestock are largely raised up for profit. Expanding animals (animal husbandry) is a component of current agriculture. It has been experienced in many cultures since the transition to husbandry from hunter-gather lifestyles.

Track 14: Cryobiology

Cryobiology is defined as the study of the effects of subfreezing temperatures on biological organisms. It includes the basics of physics and biology. The source of cryobiology is to deliver consistency to the globe.

Track 15: Fresh water Fisheries

Freshwater fisheries are those that spend some or all of their lives in fresh water, such as rivers and lakes, with a salinity of less than 0.05%. These atmospheres differ from marine conditions in many ways, the most obvious being the variance in levels of salinity. To survive fresh water, the fish need a range of physiological adaptations.

Track 16: Aquatic ecology

An aquatic ecology is an ecosystem in a body of water. Communities of organisms that are in need of on each other and on their atmosphere live in marine environments. The two main types of marine ecosystems are marine ecosystems and freshwater ecosystems.

Track 17: Aquatic Management

The combined process of information collecting, analysis, planning, discussion, management, sharing of resources and construction and implementation, with administration as required, of procedures or rules which direct fisheries activities in order to confirm the sustained productivity of the resources and the accomplishment of other fisheries purposes. The fisheries management authority and the interested parties. The fishers and fishing companies would generally be the main participants among the interested parties. The fisheries organisation expert is that presence which has been given the order by the State (or States in the case of an international authority) to attain particular management functions. In several countries that authority would be a Department of fisheries or inside a broader Department, a Division of Fisheries.














Global Market Segmentation:

Global aquaculture demand was 69,230 kilo tons in 2013 and is predictable to extent 80,400 kilo tons by 2020, rising at a CAGR of 2.0% from 2014 to 2020. China was major market for aquaculture, accounting for about 53% of global market share, valued at USD 77,934.8 million in 2013. The market is estimated to show fast growth due to favourable climatic environments for aqua farming, accessibility of resources and labour. Asia Pacific (excluding China) was the second leading market for aquaculture with market demand of 17.965.2 kilo tons in 2013, and is estimated to grow with a CAGR of 2.1% from 2014 to 2020 due to model climatic conditions and industrial innovation in this region. In 2013, fresh water was the major culture environment for aquaculture with market share of over 60% and is likely to witness rapid growth, at an estimated CAGR of 2.2% from 2014 to 2020.

Asia pacific aquaculture market segments:

Asia is the home of aquaculture, a practice which dates back to thousands of years. In the course of its expansion, the nature of aquaculture has become more difficult, intertwining with other food production sectors under the influence of political, social, economic, technological and cultural factors. With development of technology, the participation of more aquatic species and farming practices has turn into possible, and more choices can be offered to the consumers. Population growth, economic growth and the growth of disposable income and higher purchasing power, and social factors such as traditional fish consumption patterns, will shape future demand for fish and fishery products (Westlund, 1995). Issues of sustainability can also change our perception of desired forms of aquaculture enlargement and management (Roberts and Muir 1995). Under the evolving global trade negotiations and agreements, new ways of aquaculture may have to be adopted, so that the ecological and resource costs of production, as factors of sustainability, are kept within approved limits. It could become increasingly tough to pursue the traditional methods of aquaculture where a particular species is produced for a market, based exclusively on prices. Under the World Trade Organization, suppliers would have to satisfy a set of requirements to confirm controllable development of aquaculture.

Middle East aquaculture market segments

With seven seas surrounding the region, including the Mediterranean, the Persian Gulf, the Gulf of Aden, the Red Sea, the Black Sea, the Caspian Sea and the Arabian Sea, the Middle East is not short of sources for fresh seafood. However, entire manufacture in the region extents to only 2.17% of the total worldwide production. Middle Eastern capture fisheries are categorized by a large number of small-scale fishers, with estimates that the small-scale sector provides about 80 to 90% of the total landings.

Europe Aquaculture Market segments

Aquaculture in the European Union. European aquaculture producers largely produce fresh-water fish, salt-water fish and molluscs. They also produce small quantities of crustaceans and seaweed. Producing 1 315 000 tonnes in 2000, European aquaculture accounts for hardly 3% of world production, even though it tops the list for assured species. Annual production value amounts to EUR 2 500 million. Fish farming can be found in rural areas and peripheral regions in need of on fisheries. In some regions, like Galicia and Brittany, it plays a crucial socio-economic role. The division suffers from price uncertainty and should be regulated by suitable regulation at European level. This would help to deliver constancy in areas dependent on fishing and deliver them with economic viability and self-sufficiency. The field of aquaculture faces many challenges. In specific, the importance must be to keep the sector economically sustainable, guarantee food safety and animal welfare, solve environmental difficulties and encourage research.

American Aquaculture Market segments:

The United States dominated regional production with 438 000 mt in 1997, valued at US$771 million, although Canadian production of 83,000 Mt made US$322 million. The greater relative earnings for Canadian production reflect the authority of Atlantic salmon, while channel catfish is the principal species cultured in the United States. In North America, the value of farmed salmon increased from US$82 million in 1988 to US$371 million in 1997, an APR of 18.3. Channel catfish production in the United States enlarged from 164 000 mt in 1988 to 238 000 mt in 1997, a 45 percent gain at an APR of 4.2. Production of other finfish species contains trout, sturgeon, striped bass, golden shiners and tilapia. Shellfish cultured in the region include American and Pacific cupped oysters, blue mussels, clams, crayfish and shrimp.
