6th International Conference of Aquaculture Indonesia (ICAI)
October 27 – 29, 2016
The International Conference of Aquaculture Indonesia 2016 is one of the most significant regional or global aquaculture events held in Indonesia. This is the sixth event of ICAI which, starting this year, becomes the annual international forum for the aquaculture community—academics, researchers, students, market and industry analysts, government officials, policy makers and industry representatives—organised and hosted by Indonesian Aquaculture Society (MAI).
This conference is designed to encourage the exchange of ideas, information and knowledge between scientists and industry personnel on important issues in aquaculture and finding solutions to support the industry. This conference will be a meeting forum and current-information sharing between scientists and the business actors in aquaculture coming from all over Asia-Pacific and other countries.
The theme for ICAI 2016 is "Innovations in Aquaculture Technology for Sustainable Aquaculture in the Future". Global food demand will increase by much as 70% by 2050 due to increased population. High food demand has positioned aquaculture as an important industry sector and as food-supply and economic mover. Indonesia has the potential to be the biggest aquaculture producer in the world (67.7 million tonnes per year) consisting of marine aquaculture sector (47 million tonnes), brackishwater aquaculture sector (15 million tonnes), and freshwater aquaculture sector (5.7 million tonnes). However, this high potential is just utilised up to 11%. A sustainable aquaculture management is needed in Indonesia, including the development of infrastructure, investment, friendly environment and human resources. The aquaculture industry must reduce reliance on fishmeal and fish oil as a key ingredient in aqua feeds. A focus on looking for new sources omega-3 will be very important in developing sustainable aqua feeds.
This conference will tackle the many threats and opportunities and consider how to best manage the sustainable development of the global aquaculture industry. There will be plenary sessions and topics-based parallel class sessions for two days of the conference. The class sessions will consist of 1.) diseases and aquaculture sustainability; 2.) aquaculture management and technology; 3.) feed management and nutrition; 4.) genetics and breeding; 5.) aquaculture business and marketing (shrimp, finfish, seaweed, eel); and 6.) Farmers Day and applied technology forum.
