Global Importance:

Fisheries and aquaculture remain important sources of food, nutrition, income and livelihoods for hundreds of millions of people around the world. World per capita fish supply reached a new record high of 20 kg in 2014, thanks to vigorous growth in aquaculture, which now provides half of all fish for human consumption, and to a slight improvement in the state of certain fish stocks due to improved fisheries management. Moreover, fish continues to be one of the most-traded food commodities worldwide with more than half of fish exports by value originating in developing countries. Recent reports by high-level experts, international organizations, industry and civil society representatives all highlight the tremendous potential of the oceans and inland waters now, and even more so in the future, to contribute significantly to food security and adequate nutrition for a global population expected to reach 9.7 billion by 2050.

 

Global Market Segmentation:

Global fish production has grown steadily in the last five decades, with food fish supply increasing at an average annual rate of 3.2 percent, outpacing world population growth at 1.6 percent. World per capita apparent fish consumption increased from an average of 9.9 kg in the 1960s to 19.2 kg in 2012 (preliminary estimate). This impressive development has been driven by a combination of population growth, rising incomes and urbanization, and facilitated by the strong expansion of fish production and more efficient distribution channels.

Global total capture fishery production in 2014 was 93.4 million tonnes, of which 81.5 million tonnes from marine waters and 11.9 million tonnes from inland waters. For marine fisheries production, China remained the major producer followed by Indonesia, the United States of America and the Russian Federation. Catches of anchoveta in Peru fell to 2.3 million tonnes in 2014 – half that of the previous year and the lowest level since the strong El Niño in 1998 – but in 2015 they had already recovered to more than 3.6 million tonnes. For the first time since 1998, anchoveta was not the top-ranked species in terms of catch as it fell below Alaska pollock.

 American Fisheries & Aquaculture Market segments:

The United States dominated regional production with 438000 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.

Europe Fisheries & Aquaculture Market segments:

Total fishery production covers total catches in the seven regions covered by EU Statistical Regulations as well as aquaculture production for human consumption. The monitoring of catches and aquaculture production is an essential tool for securing fish stocks and sustaining the common resources available in Europe’s large and rich fishing area. The total production of fishery products in the EU was an estimated 6.0 million tonnes of live weight equivalent (in other words, the mass or weight when removed from water) in 2013. It should be noted that this figure excludes catch data for the Czech Republic, Hungary, Luxembourg, Austria and Slovakia, which are landlocked countries without a marine fishing fleet. The EU figure for 2013 suggests there was a rise in fishery production (+ 6.5 % compared with 2012), contradicting the steady decline noted over the previous 13 years (– 28.5 % from 2000 to 2012). This rise in total production was only due to increased catches given the decline of aquaculture production

Asia pacific Fisheries & Aquaculture market segments:

According to official statistics, production in a number of Asia-Pacific fisheries peaked in the last two decades and is now stable or declining, depending on the area being fished. Highly intensive fishing, especially in trawl fisheries, targeting shrimp and other demersal species has also led to a change in catch composition. The share in landings of fast growing and short-lived species and the catch of small-sized juveniles of commercially important fish species is steadily increasing (so-called “fishing down the food chain”). There is also evidence (e.g. Gulf of Thailand) that the abundance of species at higher levels in the food chain has seriously declined with a resulting higher risk to biodiversity and increased vulnerability of fisheries. There is little doubt that the quality of stocks has deteriorated faster than the volume and value of fish caught. However, it appears that many fisheries remain financially viable due to strong market demand and low opportunity cost of attracting labour into the fishing profession.

Middle East Fisheries & 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. Capture fisheries are characterized by a large number of small-scale fishers, with it estimated that the small-scale sector provides about 80 to 90% of the total landings.

Aquaculture (Freshwater, Brackish water, Mari culture & Coldwater):

Aquaculture, also known as aquafarming, is the farming of fish, crustaceans, molluscs, aquatic plants, algae, and other aquatic organisms. Aquaculture meetings involves discussions of cultivating freshwater and saltwater populations under controlled conditions, and can be contrasted with commercial fishing, which is the harvesting of wild fish. Mariculture refers to aquaculture practiced in marine environments and in underwater habitats.

Fish Genetics & Biotechnology:

Genetic analyses have much to offer fisheries managers, especially in the provision of tools enabling unequivocal specimen identification and assessment of stock structure. Biotechnology provides powerful tools for the sustainable development of aquaculture, fisheries, as well as the food industry. The growth of worldwide aquaculture has been sustained and rapid, and the explosion of research in genetic biotechnology has made significant impact on aquaculture and fisheries.

Fish Pathology & Physiology:

Like humans and other animals, fish suffer from diseases and parasites. Fisheries event give emphasis on fish pathology. Fish defences against disease are specific and non-specific. Non-specific defences include skin and scales, as well as the mucus layer secreted by the epidermis that traps microorganisms and inhibits their growth. If pathogens breach these defences, fish can develop inflammatory responses that increase the flow of blood to infected areas and deliver white blood cells that attempt to destroy the pathogens. Specific defences are specialised responses to particular pathogens recognised by the fish's body that is adaptive immune responses. In recent years, vaccines have become widely used in aquaculture and ornamental fish. In the fisheries meeting researchers exchange the information and their research experiences.

Fisheries Conservation & Management:

Fishery conferences are organized to explore the recent trend and process involved in Processing fisheries and aquaculture. Regulating fishing capacity requires an understanding of links between capacity and several related aspects of fisheries management: the way in which access to the fish stocks is regulated, the way in which participants in a fishery react to different types of regulations, and the way in which subsidies affect participation in fisheries. While many fisheries are now managed to some degree, much of the emphasis has been on controlling how fishers are allowed to catch fish or on controlling the amount of fishing effort those fishers put into fisheries, and not on regulating capacity as such. The relative effectiveness of different management measures in regulating fishing capacity is now better understood and it is clear that effective capacity management requires understanding the factors that drive fishing behaviour and fleet dynamics. The aim of organizing fisheries conference is to supply exposure to technologies regarding the trends in fisheries and aquaculture.

Aquaculture Engineering:

Aquaculture engineering is the branch of agricultural engineering that studies cultured aquatic species and the production systems used in their culture. Study, research and development in this area ranges from low intensity man-made pond systems to highly intensive recirculating aquaculture systems. Species cultured in these systems range from tilapia to salmon and can also include shellfish or seaweed. Ponds make up a large portion of aquaculture production systems, along with sea cages, and tank systems.

Freshwater Fisheries:

Fisheries are vital for the livelihoods and food resources of humans worldwide but their importance is underestimated, probably because large numbers of small, local operators are involved. Fisheries conference includes the discussions about freshwater Fisheries Ecology that defines what we have globally, what we are going to lose and mitigate for, and what, given the right tools, we can save. To estimate potential production, fisheries meeting aim to understand the dynamics of freshwater ecosystems (rivers, lakes and estuaries). According to fisheries and aquaculture event, freshwater fishing is one of the types of fishing that is ideal for beginning anglers since it can be enjoyed from shore or from land using a simple tackle set up. There are freshwater lakes, reservoirs, ponds, streams and rivers where you can catch fish and enjoy a great day out on the water.

Aquatic Ecology:

Ecology is the scientific study of how organisms interact with each other and with their environment. This includes relationships between individuals of the same species, between different species, and between organisms and their physical and chemical environments. Aquatic ecology includes the study of these relationships in all aquatic environments, including oceans, estuaries, lakes, ponds, wetlands, rivers, and streams. The boundaries of an aquatic ecosystem are somewhat arbitrary, but generally enclose a system in which inflows and outflows can be estimated. Ecosystem ecologists study how nutrients, energy, and water flow through an ecosystem.

Fish Farming:

Fisheries conference focusses on fish farming, a form of aquaculture in which fish are raised in enclosures to be sold as food. It is the fastest growing area of animal food production. According to fisheries meeting reports, about half the fish consumed globally are raised in these artificial environments. Commonly farmed species include salmon, tuna, cod, trout and halibut. These “aquafarms” can take the form of mesh cages submerged in natural bodies of water, or concrete enclosures on land. As is the case with industrial animal farms on land, the fish are often housed in unnaturally crowded and cramped conditions with little room to move. Fish may suffer from lesions, fin damage and other debilitating injuries. The overcrowded and stressful conditions promote disease and parasite outbreaks - such as sea lice - that farmers treat with pesticides and antibiotics. The use of antibiotics can create drug-resistant strains of diseases that can harm wildlife populations and even humans that eat the farmed fish. The aim of organizing the fisheries event is to supply exposure to technologies and international tie-ups and to supply data regarding recent trends in fisheries and aquaculture.

Deep Water & Demersal Fisheries:

Fisheries conference gives information about deep water and demersal fisheries. The deep-water demersal fishes are generally divided into two categories, benthic and bentho-pelagic. The benthic fishes are those that have a close association with the seabed and include species such as skates and flatfishes. Bentho-pelagic fishes are those that swim freely and habitually near the ocean floor and, in the areas where deep-water fisheries are commercially viable, they comprise most of the exploited biomass. Fisheries meeting focuses on the general concept of the deep sea is of a dark, cold, food scarce environment where biomass decreases exponentially with depth.

Shellfish Fisheries:

Fisheries event explain about the shellfish fisheries. Fish have always been important to Maine’s economy and survival. Native people, European explorers, settlers, and Mainers today have depended on marine life for food and trade. Maine fishermen catch a wide range of fish, shellfish, and other sea animals for a broad market. The aim of organizing fisheries conference is to supply exposure to technologies regarding the trends in fisheries and aquaculture. Today’s fishermen in the Gulf of Maine often sell their catch at the Portland fish exchange, where buyers purchase fish at daily auction. Fisheries today include haddock, halibut, flounder, hake, and Pollock. Seasonally, fishermen also harvest clams, mussels, scallops, oysters, shrimp, alewives, herring, mackerel, and tuna. Salmon, oysters, and mussels are usually raised in aquaculture facilities along the coast. Recreational fishermen pursue striped bass, mackerel, shad, bluefish, and smelt.

Fisheries Industries Update:

According to fisheries meeting discussions, aquaculture or fish farming accounts for over 50% of the world market for fish products.  As global populations continue to increase, wild populations of commercially captured fish can no longer support this demand.  Aquaculture provides an efficient means of protein production. The aim of organizing fisheries conference is to supply exposure to technologies regarding the trends in fisheries and aquaculture. In the US great strides have been taken by the industry to insure best management practices for the sustainability, consistency, economic feasibility, food safety, and environmentally friendly ways for farmed fish and shellfish production.
