Annual GAA conference draws a global audience

Since its inception in 2001, no aquaculture conference has been as successful as the Global Aquaculture Alliance’s annual GOAL conference at connecting producers and suppliers to the marketplace to discuss the major challenges and opportunities facing responsible aquaculture.

GOAL 2016 — which took place at the White Swan Hotel in Guangzhou, China, from Sept. 19 to 22, 2016 — featured more than 400 seafood professionals from 30 countries worldwide.

Here are highlights from the four-day conference. Scroll through the photo gallery clicking the navigation arrows below or by using the left- and right-arrow keys on your keyboard.
