The International Fish Congress & Fish Expo AMAZÔNIA will bring together the states and countries of the Amazon basin to address sustainability in December 2023.
The first edition in Pará of the International Fish Congress & Fish Expo AMAZÔNIA will be held on December 3rd , 4th and 5th, 2023, at Hangar – Centro de Convenções da Amazônia. The announcement was made by representatives of the State Secretariat for Agricultural and Fisheries Development (Sedap) and the IFC Brasil organization, during the celebration of the partnership to carry out the program that will involve an international congress and business fair. With the support of the government of the State of Pará and the main entities in the sector, the event will be attended by representatives of the fish chain and national and international experts. The organizing committee, made up of representatives from the Government of Pará, through Sedap, and IFC Brasil, predicts that IFC AMAZÔNIA will be the largest event in the sector on Amazonian fish and sustainability.
The CEO of Fish Expo Amazônia – Eliana Panty, highlighted: “The key protein to feed the world is sustainable and will come from water. The United Nations (UN) prediction that the world population will reach 10 billion people by 2050, with 70% of them living in cities, appears on the horizon of Brazilian aquaculture as a responsibility and also a great opportunity”. This, according to Panty, imposes the need to increase the food supply while preserving natural resources, including water, for future generations. “That’s why we will hold the first IFC Amazônia to discuss how Brazil and the Amazon Region can contribute to this scenario of sustainable protein production.”
