Water, from creation, to be the most basic necessity of the life, and to be a source of major economic activities, is a vital element. The 105,000 km3 portion of the world's existing 35 million km3 of freshwater, which is less than 1%, is consist of freshwater resources suitable for human use.
According to UN and UNESCO, water demand will increase by about 50% in 2030 when factors such as rising population, global warming, and drought are taken into consideration. They reported that demanding water will increase about 6,900 km3, which will be more than 40% of the available and reliable supply. And so, aquaculture plays an important role in ensuring a sufficient supply of nutritious food to feed the world’s growing population. However, this requires a corresponding increase in the feed supply. Knowing the available resources is not enough to overcome their problems. In our world, Water ecosystems, which are the not endless resource, will be able to exist constantly with the detection and protection of adverse effects that occur there.
We invited all the participants from all over the world to attend 4th INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON FISHERIES and AQUATIC RESEARCH (2020) during October 27-29, 2020 in Tehran, IRAN.
This global conference includes prompt keynote presentations, Oral talks, Poster presentations and Exhibitions.
Our aim in this Conference that brings together a unique and International mix of experts, like aquaculture engineers, researchers and decision makers both from academia and industry across the globe to exchange their knowledge, experience and research innovations to its world fisheries and aquatic research Conference.
As beginning of the word, it will give us great pleasure to extend greetings and a warm welcome to everyone to attend the 3rd international Conference on Fisheries and Aquatic Research.
Under the info given above, the main theme of our congress of this year was ''Sustainable Aquaculture''. We believe that once again emphasize the importance of fisheries and aquatic research and their problems will be useful to discuss on the congress.
We honored to see our precious scientists, who work on Fisheries and Aquatic science and its advances from various regions of the world and the share in 4th INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS ON FISHERIES and AQUATIC RESEARCH.
