GLOBAL - Representatives of the Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA), the worlds leading standards-setting organisation for farmed seafood, are to promote the upcoming GOAL 2011 conference on aquaculture seafood.

The briefing, to be held 20-23 June in Santiago, Chile, will be co-hosted by the Chilean Undersecretariat for Fisheries and SalmonChile, with sponsorship by ProChile and a variety of other international companies.

GAA Editor and Development Manager, Darryl Jory, will join Assistant Director, Sally Krueger, for the trip to encourage participation in GOAL 2011 by members of Chile’s aquaculture and investment sectors.

With assistance from Adolfo Alvial Consultancies, the two will also provide information on the programme and other elements of the conference.

GOAL is an annual event that provides seafood and aquaculture business leaders with the latest information on the farmed seafood value chain through summaries of supply data for shrimp and fish, and concise reviews of leading international markets. Panel discussions address issues, project trends and identify opportunities.

This year, GOAL 2011 will be held 6-9 November at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Santiago, Chile.

The GOAL 2011 programme will highlight the host country, whose aquaculture industry is transforming itself to achieve greater sustainability and restore its position as a top salmon producer. The GOAL 2011 schedule will include options to tour aquaculture farms and other destinations.

To assist local and regional media in learning more about this important international event, Mr Jory and Ms Krueger will make a presentation and answer questions during a press conference to be held 23 June at 8:30 am in the Elqui Room of the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Santiago.
