Adelaide to host 2014 World Aquaculture Congress

The Adelaide Convention Tourism Authority (ACTA) has successfully submitted a bid to host the 2014 World Aquaculture Congress.

This major world congress is one of the largest to be held in South Australia with more than 3,000 delegates and 200 exhibitors.

Damien Kitto, ACTA CEO, said “This is not only a significant but very satisfying win for the state in light of the fierce global competition of the business events sector.”

World Aquaculture Society Asia Pacific Chapter President Roy Palmer said “South Australia is at the leading edge of Aquaculture and we know that our members will be excited at the prospect of the symposium being held there.”

Worldwide, aquaculture is growing by approximately eleven per cent each year and produces around a third of the world’s total food supply. In South Australia the aquaculture industry generates more than $262 million per year and is responsible for a third of all farmed seafood in Australia.
