The event will comprise of a scientific forum (oral/poster presentations), trade exhibition, industry forums, workshops, student events, receptions and other meetings.

Keynote speakers from Africa and beyond are expected. Special aquaculture tours will also be arranged to some of the most progressive freshwater fish farms (small, medium to large scale); aquafeeds plants, fish markets, R&D centres and other facilities of interest.
