The 3rd Annual International Conference and Exposition of the African Chapter of the World Aquaculture Society (AFRAQ24) will be held in Hammamet, Tunisia from November 19-22, 2024. The event will be hosted by the Ministry of Agriculture, Water Resources and Fisheries with support from other national entities in Tunisia.

Tunisia, being one of the top and fastest growing aquaculture producer countries in Africa, expects to receive thousands of delegates from around the world for the celebration of achievements on all aspects of aquaculture development in Africa, but also to find solutions to some of the challenges hampering the growth of the sector, and explore new opportunities in the blue economy domain.

The conference, which is themed Blue Farming: New Horizons for Economic Growth, will highlight some of the latest aquaculture research, innovations and investments to underpin continued growth of the aquaculture sector in Africa. The event will comprise a scientific forum (oral and poster presentations), trade exhibition, industry forums, satellite workshops, student events, and other organized meetings. Renowned keynote speakers from Africa and beyond are expected to attend.

Visiting Tunisia will also expose participants to some famous and interesting tourist attractions in Hammamet, the Mediterranean and countryside. Special aquaculture tours will be arranged to nearby marine finfish, shellfish and seaweed farms – that are connected to fish processing, aquafeeds and R&D facilities.
