The growth of Asia's shrimp aquaculture is moving at different speeds. This has not benefitted the entire value chain as gross margins remain thin due to low survival rates and disease outbreaks. The situation has since regressed, resulting in reduced productivity with massive increases in production cost.  There needs to be a shift in production paradigms if Asia is to reach global production levels prior to the EMS crisis.

TARS 2018 marks the fourth time this meeting will address shrimp aquaculture in Asia. Organized by Aqua Research PL and Corporate Media Services PL, and supported by Thailand's Department of Fisheries, the two-day meeting features a vibrant program with participation from international experts and key stakeholders from the industry and academia, who will share new knowledge, exchange insights and experiences at the plenary, breakout and panel discussion sessions that have become hallmarks of this critical series.  During "Hard Talk with Young Shrimp Farmers," participants will gain a better perspective on business and farming models, challenges and successes.  Among the topics to be discussed are the current state of Asia's shrimp aquaculture industry, new approaches to improve shrimp production, and higher level of control, productivity and cost efficiency, to ensure the transformation of the industry.

TARS 2018 is the ideal platform for networking and dialogue among Asia's key players in the shrimp aquaculture sector, including CEOs, geneticists, farm and hatchery managers, integrators, feed producers, technologists, investors, marketers, as well as governments, NGOs and academia.
