Institute of Aquaculture - Nha Trang University is proud to be hosting the 11th Regional Aquafeed Forum (RAF11). The event is organized in collaboration with Research Institutes for Aquaculture No 1, No 2 and No 3; universities including Nong Lam University, Can Tho University, and Vietnam National University of Agriculture (VNUA). As usual, the RAF11 is a platform for research scientists, ingredient suppliers, aquafeed producers, managers, large-scaled farmers and related stakeholders involved in aquafeed industry in Asia and Pacific Region to share their experience, knowledge and to develop partnership. This year, RAF11 event expects to have over 100 attendees/exhibitors for 3 days, from September 25th - 27th, 2019 in Nha Trang city, Viet Nam.
High quality contributions are now being sought on key themes ‘Optimizing utilization of Feed Ingredients and Additives for Sustainable Aquaculture’ that progress the development of science and practice in the aquaculture nutrition, ingredient utilization, feed and feeding of aquatic animals and that stimulate innovation in the Asian and Pacific region’s growing aquaculture industries.
RAF is also a platform for all stakeholders in aquafeed industry to strengthen their business partnerships. As with most RAF events, there will be plenty of opportunities to network, socialize and collaborate during both formal and informal functions. This element of the forum is so important that we have planned a “Field visit” on the last day that will encourage researchers and ingredient suppliers with industry interactions to network and/or expand business opportunity. The RAF11 will be also an opportunity to discuss and debate the current and looming issues faced by the aquaculture feed sector and to develop innovative and novel ways to overcome them.
On behalf of the RAF 11 organizing committee, we look forward to seeing you in Nha Trang, a well-known tourist city of Viet Nam in autumn this year.
