The Latin American and Caribbean Aquaculture 2020 Webinar (LACQUA2020) was organised by the Latin American and Caribbean Chapter of the World Aquaculture Society and took place online from March 23-25, 2021.
Each day of the webinar was divided into a session in the morning and another in the afternoon, as well as at the end of each session a space for questions and answers with the experts. Each session revolved around a specific topic, day one was focuesed on economy, markets and shrimp; day two on macrobrachium and tilapia; and day three on native species and marine fish, management of the health and production systems. Sponsoring companies had a space to present their products and services in a special session.
'We appreciate the participation of our sponsors USSEC (US Soybean Export Council), Cargill, Kemin, Brabender. Your support is of great value for the successful development of our events and aquaculture in the region. Likewise, we want to thank all the media such as Aquaculture Industry, Aquaculture Panorama, International Aquafeed, among others for helping us with the dissemination of the event,' commented the WAS.
'A special thanks to all the attendees who accompanied us the three days of the virtual event. From the south of the continent to the north we had entry records. There were more than 200 people in total.'
A special mention to all the invited experts who answered our call and participated in the event sharing very valuable information. This is the space that the Latin American and Caribbean Chapter of WAS hopes to promote. A space where information can be shared, where experts from distant nationalities can interact and specify new projects, meet or meet again and thus strengthen Latin American aquaculture.
