ASIA - The EC funded SEAT project will be holding a series of State of the System (SOS) workshops in Bangladesh, China, Viet Nam and Thailand between March and May 2011.

These interactive workshops will be specifically aimed at gathering the views and feedback of a wide range of invited stakeholders on project fieldwork and findings already carried out, whilst also providing each of them a background to the culture, promotion, regulation and marketing of key aquaculture species (Tilapia, Pangasius, Shrimp and Macrobrachium) in other S Asian Countries.

The workshops will also allow participants with different interests and stakes in the aquaculture industry to interact and share their views. The overall outputs and findings from each of these meetings will be put into illustrated, user friendly, bilingual “SOS Reports” which will be available online on this main SEAT website and also in hard copy booklets.

Khulna, Bangladesh, 17-20th March

Zhangjiang, China, 26-29th April

Mekong Delta, Viet Nam, 18-21st May

Chachoengsao or Chantaburi, Thailand, 23-26th May

These increases in demand for aquaculture products, food security considerations, and job creation have generated an increased need for skilled workers.
