Fifth Spain-Latin American Forum on Marine Resources and Aquaculture, Cádiz, Spain
2012-11-26 The Fifth Spain-Latin American Forum on Marine Resources and Aquaculture will take place from 26 to 29 November 2012 in Cádiz, Spain.
The growth of the world population is leading to concern by experts and stakeholders about the ability to provide food for an increasing population. Aquatic systems, seas and oceans, occupy two-thirds of the Earth's surface, and have a leading role in supplying food and consumables. At the same time, fish catches have remained largely stagnant since 1995 and face a variety of restrictions. The United Nations also warns that 52% of marine stocks are overexploited.
Latin America and Spain are affected by increasing birth rates and rising consumption rates of fish as a healthy food.
The event is a chance to discuss the diagnosis and the relevance of focusing strategies for fisheries and aquaculture in Spain and Latin America. The aim is to further important debates on policy that affects fisheries management and the promotion of aquaculture. It will also be an opportunity to review primarily the state of cooperative relations between Latin America and Spain.
