Keynote: Feeding the future
George Chamberlain, president, Global Aquaculture Alliance
Sustainability is no longer just a buzz word. Innovations in the aquaculture sector have made sustainable seafood production a reality, while helping to solve the world’s food supply challenges. This keynote presentation will outline the work that’s being done and – still needs to be done – to ensure the development of an aquaculture sector that is both responsive and responsible.
