July 24 - July 26, 2023
Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam


MISSION:  To improve shrimp production across Asia by bringing together leaders from production, market, and conservation communities to discuss constraints, innovations, and solutions.

Asia constitutes two-thirds of global shrimp production, but growth in Vietnam, China, India, Thailand, and Indonesia is leveling off or contracting. Meanwhile, Ecuador is projected to represent the majority of the world’s 7% growth in shrimp production in 2023.

By sharing expertise, developing a common understanding of issues, and working toward consensus solutions, new paradigms are expected to emerge through productivity, improved livelihoods, and achievement of a higher level of sustainability, especially regarding climate change.
