International Conference on Fisheries and Aquaculture (ICFA) 2014 Colombo

  • Conference Call
  • On behalf of Con­fer­ence Orga­niz­ing Com­mit­tee, it is our great priv­i­lege to invite you to the Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Fish­eries and Aqua­cul­ture – ICFA 2014 – to be held on Sep­tem­ber 9 – 10, 2014 in Colombo, Sri Lanka at the Hotel Gal­adari. We would like to invite sci­en­tist, researchers, schol­ars and prac­ti­tion­ers from around the world to be a part of this con­fer­ence. The Con­fer­ence will be orga­nized by The Inter­na­tional Insti­tute of Knowl­edge Man­age­ment (TIIKM).

    Aqua­cul­ture is the fastest grow­ing food pro­duc­tion sec­tor in the world. With the world’s pop­u­la­tion con­stantly increas­ing, and the agri­cul­ture industry’s future dwin­dling, we must dis­cover another source of food, or advance it so it will cover the con­tin­u­ously increas­ing pop­u­la­tion. It is very impor­tant to known that nearly 90% of the earth sur­face cov­ered by water. The ICFA 2014 try to estab­lished a plat­form to iden­tify this valu­able and poten­tial future food feed­ing source. Con­fer­ence will dis­cuss and debate upon wide range of research inter­ests such as Nutri­tion, health man­age­ment, Marine Ecosys­tems and Aquatic Envi­ron­ment Man­age­ment, Fish­eries gov­er­nance and pro­mot­ing aqua­cul­ture sus­tain­abil­ity, Marine Fisheries/​Aquaculture Sci­ence and fish biology.

    Other than par­tic­i­pat­ing to the aca­d­e­mic ses­sions, par­tic­i­pants can explore tra­di­tions, beauty and hos­pi­tal­ity of Sri Lanka. Del­e­gates will have exten­sive oppor­tu­ni­ties to visit and enjoy excit­ing places in Sri Lanka dur­ing their stay in Sri Lanka and with the post con­fer­ence tour orga­niz­ing by Con­fer­ence orga­niz­ing com­mit­tee. More­over, the lux­u­ri­ous sur­round­ings of our venue pro­vide the per­fect set­ting for devel­op­ing rela­tions .Par­tic­i­pants can net­work with each other dur­ing the social net­work din­ner, cul­tural show and dur­ing the dis­cus­sion forums to build inter­na­tional net­work and share knowl­edge with each others.
