A feature for Aquaculture without Frontiers at the American Aquaculture event in San Antonio, Texas 19-22 February 2017 was the presentation by AwF Director, Dr Albert GJ Tacon (Aquatic Farms Limited, Kaneohe, Hawaii). Albert and his co-writer, Dr Marc Metian (International Atomic Energy Agency, Environmental Laboratories, Monaco) dedicated the paper “Food Matters: Fish, Income and Food Supply” to Aquaculture without Frontiers in order to show the importance of fish and fishery products in human nutrition and global food supply.
Albert said: “Hunger and food security remain as one of the most devastating problems facing the world’s poor and continues to dominate the health and socio and economic development of the world’s poorest nations and peoples.”
The AwF Session incorporated a number of discussions, including Dr Antonia Garza de Yta (Mexico and Latin America), Dave Conley (the new relationship with the African Association of Agriculture Economists), Dr Marty Riche (Kenya and other African countries) and Roy Palmer (India and Asia).
