The World Aquaculture Society's (WAS) Aquaculture Conference will take place from 30 August to 2 September 2020 in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada.

St. John’s has long been a centre of excellence in aquaculture, having pioneered ocean harvesting since the earliest explorers set foot on Newfoundland. From highly-skilled engineers, veterinarians and researchers to marine biologists, scientists and farmers, the men and women who work in St. John’s aquaculture industry are world-class experts in their fields.

Mark Lane, executive director Newfoundland Aquaculture Industry Association said: "We are absolutely thrilled and honoured to be selected as the location for WAS North America 2020. To have Newfoundland and Labrador recognized for its potential as an aquaculture growth area globally is a milestone that we are proud of.

"We look forward to sharing our success stories as an industry and our beautiful province as a world-class destination with aquaculture enthusiasts spanning all areas of the globe in 2020."
