LONDON, April 9, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
Asia is the powerhouse of aquaculture and aquaculture is the fastest growing agri business opportunity in the world!
In Asia, the industry is growing at a rapid rate and the region leads the rest of the world, in the volume and value of its output, in the number and variety of the species it grows, and in the variety of the growing systems it uses. China alone generates 60% of the world's aquaculture production!
To encourage investment and secure investors and lenders, aquaculture needs a flourishing and competitive insurance market, and this is especially true in Asia. Yet for too long the insurance industry has focused on aquaculture in the Americas, Europe, and Australasia, to the exclusion of the Asian region. This needs to change.
AAIRMC is a development of the very successful series of similar events that have been held in Europe over the past 25 years. It will bring together experienced experts in all the inputs the insurance market needs if it is to expand profitably in Asia - insurers, reinsurers, brokers and loss adjusters. These experts will join delegates from around the world to hear papers provided by an international panel of speakers.
The Conference Programme will cover the aquacultural market's record, and the financing and financial risk management of the industry. It will include papers on new insurance products and ways of insuring fish farmers and their assets. The history of diseases in key industry sectors will be covered, also climate change, acidification of coastal waters, and key feed developments. Other papers will cover mutualisation, the alginate industry, site surveillance, and satellite monitoring and predator control. Three leading experts will address the Shrimp industry's growing processes, disease issues, and its insurance needs, drawing on shrimp farming's record around the world, including in Central and South America, and Asia.
JOIN DELEGATES FROM OVER 20 COUNTRIES AND FROM THE MAJOR AQUACULTURE PRODUCTION AREAS OF THE WORLD
