Why in Japan???

Aquaculture has a very long history in Japan, beginning with nori seaweed culture in the 16th century. The artificial feeding of marine species was said to initiate in 1927 with yellowtail in Kagawa Prefecture. The aquaculture of yellowtail was suspended in World War II, but had come back in the decade following the War. And new aquaculture technologies were gradually applied to an increasing number of species. At present, it is said that about 30 species are cultivated in Japan; a part of those comprise most of the domestic production and so on. So The Aquaculture Summit 2017 take a step to educates consumers about the future prospective of aquaculture and fishing and risk management and we aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results.

Global Market Segmentation:

Global aquaculture demand was 69,230 kilo tons in 2013 and is expected to reach 80,400 kilo tons by 2020, growing at a CAGR of 2.0% from 2014 to 2020. China was largest market for aquaculture, accounting for about 53% of global market share, valued at USD 77,934.8 million in 2013. The market is expected to show rapid growth due to favourable climatic conditions for aqua farming, availability of resources and labour. Asia Pacific (excluding China) was the second largest market for aquaculture with market demand of 17.965.2 kilo tons in 2013, and is estimated to grow with a CAGR of 2.1% from 2014 to 2020 due to ideal climatic conditions and technological innovation in this region. In 2013, fresh water was the largest culture environment for aquaculture with market share of over 60% and is expected to witness swift growth, at an estimated CAGR of 2.2% from 2014 to 2020.

American Aquaculture Market segments:

The United States dominated regional production with 438 000 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 Aquaculture Market segments: Aquaculture in the European Union. European aquaculture producers mainly produce fresh-water fish, salt-water fish and molluscs. They also produce small quantities of crustaceans and seaweed. Producing 1 315 000 tonnes in 2000, European aquaculture accounts for barely 3% of world production, although it tops the list for certain species. Annual production value amounts to EUR 2 500 million. Fish farming can be found in rural areas and peripheral regions dependent on fisheries. In some regions, like Galicia and Brittany, it plays a crucial socio-economic role.The sector suffers from price instability and should be regulated by appropriate legislation at European level. This would help provide stability in areas dependent on fishing and provide them with economic viability and self-sufficiency.The field of aquaculture faces many challenges.In particular, the priority must be to keep the sector economically viable, guarantee food safety and animal welfare, solve environmental problems and stimulate research.

Asia pacific aquaculture market segments:

Asia is the home of aquaculture, a practice which dates back to thousands of years. In the course of its development, the nature of aquaculture has become more intricate, intertwining with other food production sectors under the influence of political, social, economic, technological and cultural factors. With advancement of technology, the involvement of more aquatic species and farming practices has become possible, and more choices can be offered to the consumers. Population growth, economic growth and the development of disposable income and higher purchasing power, and social factors such as traditional fish consumption patterns, will shape future demand for fish and fishery products (Westlund, 1995). Issues of sustainability can also change our perception of desirable forms of aquaculture development and management (Roberts and Muir 1995). Under the evolving global trade negotiations and agreements, new ways of aquaculture may have to be adopted, so that the environmental and resource costs of production, as factors of sustainability, are kept within agreed limits. It could become increasingly difficult to pursue the traditional methods of aquaculture where a particular species is produced for a market, based exclusively on prices. Under the World Trade Organization, suppliers would have to satisfy a set of requirements to ensure sustainable development of aquaculture.

Middle East 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. Middle eastern capture fisheries are characterized by a large number of small-scale fishers, with estimates that the small-scale sector provides about 80 to 90% of the total landings.

Why Osaka, Japan..?

Commercial aquaculture production in Japan has developed dramatically since the end of the 2nd World War and today occupies an important place in the fisheries sector. Total aquaculture production in 2003 was estimated at 1 301 437 tonnes, worth US$ 4 199 million (FAO 2005), which corresponds to 22 percent of total national fisheries production and 31 percent of the total value produced in Japan. Marine aquaculture accounts for 96 percent of total aquaculture production and 90 percent of the total value produced. Together with our active role in the analysis of standards for sustainable farming practices, aquaculture market, aquaculture research, aquaculture societies, Japan is the suitable place to all Asian countries to reach Aquaculture Summit 2017, Osaka, Japan is also famous as world’s best tourism spot, So we are committed to place our Aquaculture Summit 2017 in Osaka, Japan.
