Why in Dubai???

A fast-growing population has created a huge gap between demand and supply of seafood in the UAE, tilting 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 a challenge for the UAE; it is a global problem. Food consumption, as with other countries, has increased compared to production. The UAE seafood demand and supply gap is increasing but we aim to bridge it through aqua farming,”.And new aquaculture technologies were gradually applied to an increasing number of species. So The World  Aqua congress 2017 take a step to educates consumers about the future prospective of aquaculture and fishing and risk management and we aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results.

Track 7: Fish Biology: Immunology, Physiology & Pathology:

Aquatic immunology compacts with ailment problems represent the most important unmarried reason of monetary losses in aquaculture. In 1988, catfish manufacturers lost over a hundred million fish worth nearly $eleven million. Estimates for 1989 forecast even major losses. The trout enterprise said 1988 losses of over 20 million fish really worth over $2.five million. No statistics are avail on losses sustained by means of producers of shellfish. Bacterial infections constitute the most massive source of disease problems in all of the numerous styles of production. Gram-terrible microorganism reason epizootics in almost all cultured species. Fungal diseases constitute the second maximum crucial supply of losses, mainly inside the way of life of crustaceans and salmon. External protozoan parasites are chargeable for the lack of big numbers of fry and fingerling fin fishes and are a reason of epizootics from all young shellfish. The variety of therapeutants authorized by using the food and drug management is limited. Invention to aid the registration of promising therapeutic retailers is urgently wished.

 Track 11: Culture of Fishes, Crustaceans, Molluscs and Aquatic Plants:

When a remaining growing improved sort of fish having correct flavour are cultured in small and controlled water frame underneath managed conditions and control is known as fish tradition. Like in agriculture, in fish tradition additionally, the water frame is prepared, fertilised, stocked with cultivable fish species, fed with supplementary food and grown to larger size and in the end harvested when they gain marketable size. Fish lifestyle is being one of the most efficient tradition practices; consequently, fish culture is very common place and widely practised in maximum of the nations of the arena. this fish way of life practice do no longer most effective produces nutritious meals - fish for the enhancing nutritional repute but additionally helps in producing earnings and provide job opportunities to the mass of the human beings. The fish way of life is comparatively simpler, thus someone presents to look after large manufacturing regions in evaluate to different agricultural activities. Furthermore, by means of this practice device, fish is produced at low and decrease value and the expanded production supply economic gain to the grower. the construction of a water body inside the shape of small or huge pond do no longer most effective facilitates to hold fish lifestyle however it also enables in retaining water to apply as in step with the want arises e.g. to combat towards the fire or to keep the main agricultural crop with the aid of irrigation in drought condition.

Track 12: Aquaculture Economics:

 Economics of aquaculture is reviewed on ranges: micro and macro. Micro-economics in aquaculture deals in particular with the management measures and elements affecting the efficiency of operation on the farm level, even as macro-economic addresses the evaluation of social blessings and fees of an aquaculture project. If aquaculture is socially useful however unattractive to private investors, public assist on credit, marketing, extension, training, and studies may be suitable, mainly during the early stages of improvement. The significance of economic evaluation is emphasized because it gives a basis not only inside the selection making of the man or woman farmer, however also within the components of aquaculture regulations. Therefore, greater interests have to be centred at the improvement of financial information for evaluation.

Global Market Segmentation:

Global aquaculture demand was 69,230 kilo tons in 2013 and is expected to reach 80,400 kilo tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 2.0% from 2014 to 2020. China was largest market for aquaculture, accounting for about 53% of global market share, valued at USD 77,934.8 million in 2013. The market is expected to show rapid growth due to favourable climatic conditions for aqua farming, availability of resources and labour. Asia Pacific (excluding China) was the second largest 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 ideal climatic conditions and technological innovation in this region. In 2013, fresh water was the largest culture environment for aquaculture with market share of over 60% and is expected to witness swift growth, at an estimated CAGR of 2.2% from 2014 to 2020.

American Aquaculture Market segments:

The United States dominated regional production with 438 000 mt in 1997, valued at US$771 million, while Canadian production of 83 000 mt earned US$322 million. The higher relative earnings for Canadian production reflect the dominance 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 increased 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 includes 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.

Table1: Reported aquaculture production in United States of America (from 1990)

Europe Aquaculture Market segments: Aquaculture in the European Union. European aquaculture producers mainly 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 barely 3% of world production, although it tops the list for certain species. Annual production value amounts to EUR 2 500 million. Fish farming can be found in rural areas and peripheral regions dependent on fisheries. In some regions, like Galicia and Brittany, it plays a crucial socio-economic role.The sector suffers from price instability and should be regulated by appropriate legislation at European level. This would help provide stability in areas dependent on fishing and provide them with economic viability and self-sufficiency.The field of aquaculture faces many challenges.In particular, the priority must be to keep the sector economically viable, guarantee food safety and animal welfare, solve environmental problems and stimulate research.

Table 2: Evolution of European Aquaculture Production (2005-2016)

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 development, the nature of aquaculture has become more intricate, intertwining with other food production sectors under the influence of political, social, economic, technological and cultural factors. With advancement of technology, the involvement of more aquatic species and farming practices has become possible, and more choices can be offered to the consumers. Population growth, economic growth and the development 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 desirable forms of aquaculture development 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 environmental and resource costs of production, as factors of sustainability, are kept within agreed limits. It could become increasingly difficult 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 ensure sustainable development of aquaculture.

Table 3: Composition (in percentage) of aquaculture organisms cultivated by countries in Asia

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, total production in the region amounts to only 2.17% of the total worldwide production. Middle eastern capture fisheries are characterized by a large number of small-scale fishers, with estimates that the small-scale sector provides about 80 to 90% of the total landings.

Table 4: Middle East Aquaculture & Fisheries Production

Why Dubai, UAE..?

A fast-growing population has created a huge gap between demand and supply of seafood in the UAE, tilting 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 a challenge for the UAE; it is a global problem. Food consumption, as with other countries, has increased compared to production. The UAE seafood demand and supply gap is increasing but we aim to bridge it through aqua farming ”.And new aquaculture technologies were gradually applied to an increasing number of species. So The World  Aqua congress 2017 take a step to educates consumers about the future prospective of aquaculture and fishing and risk management and we aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results.
