Theme: “Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture: The Vision, Benefits, Roles and Responsibilities

It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the 9th Edition of International Conference on Fisheries and Aquaculture 2022 (ICFA 2022) which will take place from 25th – 26th August 2022 in Hybrid. ICFA 2022 will be a premier international forum that will bring in academics, corporates, and policymakers of the industry of Fisheries and Aquaculture in one platform and facilitate the purpose of a knowledge-driven and educationally empowered sustainable future for humankind.

The key purpose of ICFA 2022 is to share the knowledge about the importance of Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture: The Vision, Benefits, Roles, and Responsibilities. ‘Artisanal’ or small-scale’ fisheries and aquaculture are defined as fisheries and aquaculture that utilize small production units with low input and output, limited technology, and little capital investment. Small-scale fishing encompasses over 90% of all fishing vessels and around 22 million fishermen globally. Fish farmers, small-scale fishers, and fish laborers have immense potential to influence how, by whom, and for whom fish and fisheries products are produced, processed, and delivered, with positive ripple effects seen across the global food chain.

The International Conference on Fisheries and Aquaculture (ICFA 2022) will provide an opportunity to highlight the potential and diversity of small-scale artisanal fisheries and aquaculture, as well as the benefits that can be gained by facilitating partnerships and cooperation with fishers and fish farmers, and fish workers and as well in achieving the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

ICFA 2022 will be a 02-Day program that will provide a platform to share your research work and publish with well-known publishers. We welcome innovative researchers to forward your abstract which focuses on the theme of “Artisanal Fisheries and Aquaculture: The Vision, Benefits, Roles and Responsibilities” for ICFA 2022.
