GOAL Goes Virtual in 2020!

The world is changing, and so is GAA’s annual GOAL conference. This year, GOAL will be held virtually. Since its inception in 2001, GOAL has built a reputation for quality. Expect the same degree of quality with a virtual experience, with live streaming, live audience Q&A and polling, and virtual meeting and networking opportunities. All program sessions will be recorded and available on-demand soon after they stream live, along with PDFs of all presentations, and the conference platform and application will remain open through early next year. It’s the next best thing to an in-person experience. Next year, GOAL will return to Tokyo, Japan, featuring a “hybrid” experience with both a live event and a virtual event occurring simultaneously.

This year’s virtual three-day program features almost 50 speakers from nearly 20 countries providing insight on the trends shaping the future of responsible aquaculture production and sourcing. And there’s no registration fee. Only GAA membership is required to attend GOAL 2020. Join us! (GAA individual and corporate members will receive log-in credentials to the conference platform and application in late September.)

  • Speaker:  Wally Stevens Global Aquaculture Alliance
Keynote Address: Food System Transformation — Challenges and Opportunities in What Will Be the Dominant Discussion Topic in the Next Years9:15 am to 9:45 am

Dr. Peer Ederer is the program and science director at the Global Food and Agribusiness Network (GFAN), a Zürich, Switzerland-based organization providing a platform for senior decision makers in the food and agribusiness industry to define their future strategies and perspectives on opportunities and challenges in their industry. The global food system is the largest user of planetary resources by a distance. Large portions of the system are not sufficiently circular, and thus exploit resources without replenishment. A transformation of the food system towards more sustainability is therefore required. The circularity gaps are largest where agricultural productivity is lowest, and where food is most scarce, primarily in Africa and South Asia. This causes a human tragedy of exposing nearly half of the future global population to insufficient food supply. It also causes global environmental damage through the interconnected meta systems such as climate change, ocean pollution and biodiversity loss. Two solution narratives have evolved which increasingly dominate the debate on food system transformation. The one narrative calls for drastic reduction in animal-sourced food production in order to produce more food with fewer resources. The other narrative calls for a drastic increase in animal-sourced food production in order to produce better food with replenishing resources. Both narratives rely heavily on technology as the critical path to success. The presentation explores how aquaculture fits into this debate of these two competing narratives, and what are the challenges and opportunities for aquaculture, as animal-sourced food production comes under even more public scrutiny in the next years as before.

Coping with Chaos: How COVID-19 is Muddling Shrimp Production and Trade9:00 am to 9:10 am

The COVID-19 pandemic has upended the food supply chain and rattled the public’s food-purchasing behaviors, perhaps for good. But how does seafood fit into the equation?

GOAL 2019 Recap


Global Aquaculture Innovation Award

In 2012, GAA established the competition to recognize individuals and companies finding new solutions to the key challenges facing aquaculture. The three finalists of this year’s eight annual Global Aquaculture Innovation Award will be announced in the Global Aquaculture Advocate in September. The three finalists will be invited to present at GAA’s GOAL 2020 conference on Thursday, Oct. 8. For the third consecutive year, the winner will be selected by an audience vote. Last year, the three finalists were Mike Forbes of Ace Aquatec, Emily Glenn of Arbiom and Adriano Mallmann of Pegasus Science. With just over half of the audience vote, Forbes was chosen as the winner for his Scottish company’s in-water electric stunning device designed to slaughter fish more humanely. The competition is sponsored by Preferred Freezer Services/Lineage Logistics.

Student Culinary Competition

In 2017, GAA established the Student Culinary Competition to provide student chefs with a life-changing experience while partnering with local culinary institutions to raise awareness of responsible aquaculture. In 2019, the three finalists were Kewal G. Chauhan, Siddhant Jaiswal and Manisha Yogesh, selected from a record 500 applicants from seven cities across India. Manisha Yogesh (pictured at left) was chosen as the winner for her entrée, Tilapia Poêlé with Crevette Arancini, Tossed Summer Vegetables, Cauliflower Saffron Puree and Wasabi De Spuma. This year’s competition has been postponed to next year in conjunction with GAA’s GOAL 2021 conference in Tokyo, Japan, from Oct. 25 to 28. The 2019 competition was sponsored by Charoen Pokphand Foods.
