Importance & Scope:
Aquaculture is a Major Field in modern food supply according to the FAO, aquaculture "is understood to mean the farming of aquatic organisms including fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants. Farming implies some form of intervention in the rearing process to enhance production, such as regular stocking, feeding, protection from predators, etc.
Aquaculture-2015 conference will cover the new research Techniques and concentrates on Exhibition of new feeds, antibiotics, instruments introduced by the Aquaculture Laboratories. Also covers the increase in need for demanding sea food. Aquaculture brings basic and advanced research of Developmental, Toxicological and Transgenic aspects.
Australia The Virgin Land of Aquaculture. Hence Aquaculture is the fastest growing primary industry in Australia; in fact it is the fastest growing food production sector in the world. With limited room for expansion in wild catch fisheries together with an ever-increasing world population, there is a heavy reliance on aquaculture as the means for fish production to meet world demand. So the Aquaculture-2015 in going to be held in Australia
Metropolitan Brisbane is a major region named after the Brisbane River on which it is located and it is the hub for natural pearl oyster industry and freshwater fishes, globally food production sector. Brisbane stands in leading position in supply of Barramundi species to global aquaculture markets by latest Aqua sense Remote Monitoring technology. Brisbane is a center for higher learning, major universities & organizations providing valuable research contributing for development of world aquaculture to meet the demand for fish by 2050.

Market Analysis of Aquaculture
Fish has been playing a vital role in providing much needed animal protein to vast global population contributing some 20% of animal protein intake for over 3 billion people. In fact, dependence on fish as a source of cheap animal protein is much higher in developing world. With increasing population estimated to cross 9 billion by 2050, various agencies have estimated demand for fish leading to mind boggling figures. With global catch of wild fish supply stagnant as most of the stocks have either reached their maximum sustainable yields or over-exploited, the bonus of meeting the demand is on or through aquaculture. One study indicates that to meet the demand for fish BY 2050, aquaculture production need to increase by 133% as compared to 2010 levels of production.
With pressure on land and water increasing and in short supply, it would not be possible for extensive or semi-intensive aquaculture being practised presently in most of the developing countries. As green revolution technologies and hybrid/transgenic crops have contributed to increased cereal and commercial crop production, aquaculture research needs to come up with technological advances that leads not only to increased productions, but should also ensure that intensification of aquaculture will not lead to additional impact on the already stressed environment.
