The global aquaculture industry continues to be the fastest growing animal-food-producing sector, accounting for around half of all fish consumed in the world today.

The Offshore Mariculture Conference is being launched in the Americas, and is organised by Mercator Media Ltd. Offshore Mariculture Mexico, is building on the success of its European sister events, and has secured support from both the Mexican National and Baja Regional Governments via their aquaculture departments – Inapesca and Sepesca.

By the sheer breadth, diversity, productivity and quality of the water in the coastal lagoons and coastal Baja California region aquaculture is recognized as an activity of strategic importance for the economic, social and regional development, encouraging productive diversification, the creation of permanent sources of labour and the production of high nutritional quality food.
