World Aquaculture North America 2020 in St. John’s, NL, Canada

The World Aquaculture Society, the Aquaculture Association of Canada and the Newfoundland Aquaculture Industry Association are excited to co-host World Aquaculture North America 2020 at the St. John’s Convention Centre in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada on August 30 to September 2, 2020.


This year’s theme “AQUACULTURE; The Leading Edge of Food Production” is reflective of the fact that aquaculture is one of the world’s fastest growing food production sectors. The theme is also symbolic of our location this year, on the leading (eastern-most) edge of North America; a point just minutes from St. John’s.

World Aquaculture North America will be a world class, international event, surely to be the largest and most exciting aquaculture conference in Canadian history. Combining the Cold Harvest conference, Aquaculture Canada and WAS Conferences, this event will be the premier attraction for aquaculture in North America in 2020. Thousands of aquaculture stakeholders from around the globe will hear from world-class speakers on the science, technology, business and social aspects of aquaculture. The Conference will also include a 3-day technology and innovation trade show. This conference is not to be missed!

Come and enjoy renowned Newfoundland and Labrador hospitality, the city’s celebrated restaurant scene and it’s legendary night life featuring live music and entertainment. St. John’s is also home to internationally recognized centres in aquaculture and fisheries science.
