Aquaculture’s premier conference – connect. collaborate. commit. Aquaculture is a rapidly growing sector where change is fast and often disruptive. The Global Aquaculture Alliance’s annual Global Outlook for Aquaculture Leadership (GOAL) conference keeps you ahead of the curve. Join other forward-thinking leaders from across the global aquaculture value chain in reviewing production, sustainability, innovation and market drivers. You’ll come away with valuable knowledge, strategic relationships and an understanding of emerging issues and solutions.

Once again this year, GOAL features a carefully curated education program coupled with numerous networking and social activities. No aquaculture conference is as successful as GOAL at bringing together the various segments of the industry — from production and supply to retail and foodservice — to discuss shared responsibilities and goals. Visit the GOAL 2019 webpage for the full conference agenda.

Space at the Leela Palace in Chennai, India, is limited. Register by Sept. 15 to guarantee a spot at the conference. After Sept. 15, registration fees go up by $600.

Antibiotics & AMR

GAA has brought on Ramanan Laxminarayan, one of the world’s foremost authorities on antibiotics and antimicrobial resistance (AMR), to address one of the biggest challenges facing aquaculture. His keynote address will be followed by a question-and-answer discussion on antibiotic use in aquaculture and AMR in humans.


No GOAL is complete without a George Chamberlain-led session touting the latest innovations in shrimp. Advances in disease management, new technologies driving efficiencies in feeding and pond management, breakthroughs in sustainable intensification, and development of a U.S.-based marketing initiative will be discussed.


How can aquaculture businesses mitigate risk and become a more investable industry? How can the investment community foster innovation across the value chain? These are among the questions that will be answered in a discussion on investors’ role in helping aquaculture become a truly sustainable solution to global food security challenges.
