gies in agribusiness marketing, farm friendly finances and time budgeting. Featuring a talented and experienced
group of female presenters, including the founding director of WINSC (Women’s Industry Network

Australasian Aquaculture COnference
                          September 26-29,2004 Sydney Convention Centre NSW
This Conference will be the first in a series of National aquaculture conferences,
to be held biennially, near the major aquaculture producing areas of Australia.
Australasian Aquaculture 2004 will be the biggest aquaculture conference and
trade show in Australia since World Aquaculture 99. This international confer-
ence and trade show will examine the Australian Industry Action Agenda and
also provide a wider forum for general exchange of technical information
among producers, suppliers of equipment and services, researchers and policy
makers.
The Theme for the Conference is “Profiting from Sustainability”
Aquaculture is a business driven by profit. However, aquaculture cannot
succeed unless it is environmentally sustainable. This conference will provide a       Conference in Sydney NSW September 2004
forum for aquaculture farmers, equipment suppliers, scientists, educators and
government regulators to meet and discuss the latest advances in aquaculture.
Aquaculture is the fastest growing food producing sector in the world, at around 11% growth per year and totalled 35.6 mil-
lion tonnes in 2000 (27% of total seafood supply). Even so, the rapid rise in global population and the static or declining pro-
duction of seafood from capture fisheries means that aquaculture is not keeping pace with demand and per capita consump-
tion is falling.
