Shrimp Summit to offer special rate to Vietnam-based attendees
July 12, 2023 By Hatchery International staff
The Centre for Responsible Seafood (TCRS) is offering a special discount to local shrimp aquaculture professionals for its inaugural Shrimp Summit on July 24-26.
The organization is reducing its current registration fee from US$1,250 to US$700 for Vietnamese residents in an effort to encourage local companies to participate in this industry event. According to a press release, TCRS is hoping the summit can foster discussions where “new paradigms are expected to emerge for productivity, improved livelihoods, and achievement of a higher level of sustainability.”
“Only if the whole value chain participates in the discussions can we expect to achieve meaningful outcomes to advance the sector,” said George Chamberlain, summit chair and TCRS president.
The Shrimp Summit will take place Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam and parts of the conference will also be available virtually on the TCRS Online Community.
The event also includes an additional excursion to the Ca Mau region where attendees will see black tiger shrimp being raised at low densities in harmony with mangroves. In addition, tours of the Viet Uc hatchery and Minh Phu’s processing plant will round out the trip.
The shrimp-focused tour to Ca Mau is an overnight excursion that includes all transportation (charter flight, modern speedboat, and bus), hotel, meals, and entertainment for 70 participants.
TCRS, formerly known as the Responsible Aquaculture Foundation, aims to bring the global seafood industry together in meeting the need for “seafood through regenerative processes and responsible seafood production.”
