The summit takes place September 6 – 8, 2012 in Hongkong. The Seafood Summit is an annual event bringing together global representatives from the seafood industry and conservation community for in-depth discussions, presentations and networking around the issue of sustainable seafood.
The panel organized by Udo Censkowsky will give an insight into global organic aquaculture production and organic seafood markets. In many developing countries organic aquaculture concepts have been developed hand in hand with social development and income generation strategies. Specific cases from Asian countries will be presented and discussed in particular related bottlenecks like organic feed and economic feasibility but also the positive impact on environment (e.g. mangroves) or socio-economic impact (e.g. income generation for small holders). Panel participants are:
- Udo Censkowsky, Organic Services
- Marc Prein, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit
- Jonathan Wong, Baptist University, Hong Kong
- Michele Stark, Institute for Market Ecology
The workshop will take place on Saturday, September 8, 1:00 – 2:30 pm.
The workshop is organized on behalf of Deutsche Gesellschaft für internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) mbH.
