Darwin is proud to be hosting World Aquaculture for Australia for the first time since 2014. This annual event will incorporate the Australasian Aquaculture industry and will see several thousand attendees from around the world converge on the city of Darwin.

Contributions to developing new and existing ideas to stimulate the aquaculture sector are welcome. With almost half of the world’s consumption of seafood coming from farms, aquaculture is playing an increasingly important role in meeting the challenge of global food security.

World Aquaculture 2023 (WA2023) will be an opportunity for the international aquaculture community – academics, industry researchers, market and industry analysts, government officials, policy makers and industry representatives to present their work and exchange ideas and develop a vision for the future of the aquaculture industry as we focus on the theme of “Supporting Strength in Aquaculture”.

The conference will have an extensive technical programme to showcase the latest developments in the industry. Researchers are welcome to submit abstracts or to create poster presentations as part of the programme. The call for papers will run until 1 February 2023.

An event not to be missed - WA2023 will offer a chance to gauge the sector’s progress, whilst we discuss and debate the issues, ideas, mechanisms and hands-on practical approaches towards building a better industry. In addition there will be ample opportunity to network during both structured and free-flowing events.
