Calling All Stakeholders

 

The Global Aquaculture Alliance invites professionals across the seafood value chain to engage in the responsible aquaculture movement at GOAL 2013, based at the Hotel Pullman Paris Montparnasse in Paris. This year’s theme, “Join the Journey,” recognizes that responsible aquaculture is not a destination but a journey. Many of the sustainable seafood goals set years ago by retailers, foodservice operators, suppliers and producers are now becoming standard industry practices.

 

Be part of this important annual event. Use the form below or contact GAA at +1-314-293-5500 or homeoffice@gaalliance.org for more event and registration information.

 

Save the Date — Attendance Is Limited

 

Mark your calendar for GOAL 2013, Oct. 7 to 10. GAA’s annual Global Outlook for Aquaculture Leadership conference features four days of aquaculture education and networking.

 

“Join the Journey” to gather more knowledge of the issues affecting farmed seafood. Engage in the discussion to bring more responsibly farmed seafood to the marketplace.

 

Looking Ahead

 

GOAL 2013 sets out to define the aquaculture agenda for the next 10 to 20 years. In particular, what else can be done to ensure the additional millions of tons of seafood required to feed the world are produced in a responsible manner? The event will also focus on opportunities to grow aquaculture production in Africa and what fish farmers there can do to better access European markets.

 

Educating Seafood Professionals

 

As in previous years, the GOAL 2013 conference program will feature three half-day stints of presentations and discussions, with up-to-date information on supply and demand forecasts for major traded farmed species, environmental and social challenges, investment opportunities and consumption trends. Throughout the event, dozens of speakers and panelists will share their thoughts on the future of responsible aquaculture.

 

Networking With Leaders

 

GOAL 2013 is expected to draw upward of 400 seafood professionals representing the world’s leading retailers, foodservice operators, suppliers, producers and NGOs. In addition to the program sessions, there will be many opportunities to network with industry leaders and set up meetings with existing and potential suppliers and buyers.
