Japan because:

Japan, “The Land of the Rising Sun” is an archipelago on the eastern edge of Asia, comprised of four largest islands: Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku, which make up about ninety-seven percent of Japan's land area and often are referred to as home islands.

Osaka is a large port city and commercial center on the Japanese island of Honshu. It is the third largest city in Japan and the central metropolis of the Kansai region. It's known for its modern architecture, nightlife and hearty street food. Osaka Castle, Osaka Aquarium Kaiyukan, Sumiyoshi-taisha, Dotonbori are few of Osaka’s numerous points of intrigue.

Saltwater fish cultivating started in Japan in 1927, in the quiet waters of the Seto Inland Sea. Full-scale fish cultivating of marine species started in the mid-1950s, utilizing nets to make counterfeit "swimming pools for fish" in the sea. It was around then that aquaculture procedures became adequately modern to rear fish in pen. Commercial aquaculture production in Japan has grown significantly since the end of the 2ndWorld War and today possesses a critical position in the fisheries sector. Yellowtail and sea bream—two favorites in Japan—are the most important fish farm products. Today, the main challenge producers are encountering is maintaining water quality in marine pens. The pens are located in bays because the water is calm, however the tidal flow is poor and consequently uneaten feed and other wastes can build up and foul the water.

The Aquaculture Summit 2018 aims at taking a step to educate consumers about the future prospective of aquaculture and fishing and risk management, provide solutions to the challenges by discussing about innovative approaches, experiences, research outcomes, services and products related to the concerned issues.

Track 1: Aquafarming

Aquafarming is the cultivating of fish, crustaceans, molluscs, aquatic plants, algae, and other aquatic organisms. It includes developing freshwater and saltwater populaces under controlled conditions, and can appear differently in relation to commercial fishing, which is the reaping of wild fish. On aquafarms, high-volume frameworks control nourishment, light on indoor homesteads, and development incitement. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations reports that the aquaculture business is growing three times quicker than terrestrial animal horticulture, and aquafarms will without a doubt turn out to be significantly more common as our regular fisheries wind up noticeably depleted.

Track 2: Pisciculture

Pisciculture or fish farming includes raising fish in tanks or walled in areas, mostly for sustenance. It is the most significant form of aquaculture, while different techniques may fall under mariculture. Around the world, the most critical fish species utilized as a part of fish farming are carp, tilapia, salmon, and catfish. Fish farms can appear as submerged mesh cages or as solid enclosures in areas ashore. Today, an enormous portion of the fish consumed globally is raised in these artificial environments.

Track 3: Aquaculture Nutrition

At the point when fishes are kept in aquaculture, it must be ensured that the fish get the supplements they require for development and proper health. Fish meal and fish oil have been the customary beginning stages for good fish feed, since they contain the supplements that fish require. It has turned out to be certain that plant proteins can supplement fish meal, since crude materials from the plant kingdom contain adequate measures of the critical amino acids, which are the building squares of proteins. Fish meal ought to contain significant measures of iodine, selenium and vitamin A.

Track 4: Aquatic & Marine Pathology

Like humans and other organisms, fish suffer from parasitic infestation and diseases. The defensive mechanisms can be specific and non-specific. Non-specific mechanisms consist of skin and scales, and additionally the mucus layer secreted by the epidermis that traps microorganisms and restrains their growth. On the off chance that pathogens break these defenses, fish can create inflammatory responses that enhance the flow of blood to infected territories and deliver WBCs that attempt to kill the pathogens. Specific defenses are specific reactions to specific pathogens perceived by the fish's body that are adaptive immune reactions.

Captive fishing, also known as wild fishing is exploitation of aquatic organisms without stocking the seed. This often exists in the sea, rivers, reservoirs, continental shelves, around coasts, etc. Fish yield decreases gradually in capture fisheries due to indiscriminate catching of fish including brooders and juveniles. Captive Fishing and their subsequent re-introduction of an endangered species is an essential and in some instances a quite successful method for conservation of such species.

About Aquaculture:

Breeding, rearing, and harvesting of life forms, mainly animals and plants in freshwater or saltwater under controlled conditions comprises of Aquaculture practice. Farming of all kinds of freshwater and marine species of fish, shellfish, and plants takes place in this practice. It also involves the production of seafood from hatchery fish and shellfish which are raised up to market size in ponds, tanks, cages, or raceways. Production of ornamental fish for the aquarium trade, and growing plant species which can be utilized in a range of food, medicinal, nutritional, and biotechnological products is also a part of aquaculture.

Scope and Importance of Aquaculture:

Throughout the world, the demand for seafood has seen a sharp rise accounting to the fact that people have realized that seafood as a part of daily diets prove to be healthier and assist in combating cardiovascular diseases, cancer, Alzheimer’s and many such major ailments. Aquaculture will facilitate availability of wild seafood and make it cheaper and accessible to all including regions where dependency on imported seafood products predominates. From farmers to fish processors and retailers, — more than 100 million people rely on the aquaculture business for sustaining themselves. Regions with poor soils and farming lands also engage in aquaculture as a form of agriculture. Aquaculture Conference attempts to unite a distinctive and world-class blend of researchers, scientists, analysts and leaders to trade their insight, experience and research advancements which will attempt to educate consumers, provide solutions, innovative approaches and promote services and products related to Aquaculture and Fisheries.

Why Osaka, Japan:

Japan, “The Land of the Rising Sun” is comprised of four largest islands: Honshu, Hokkaido, Kyushu and Shikoku, which make up about ninety-seven percent of Japan's land area and often are referred to as home islands. Osaka is a large port city and commercial center on the Japanese island of Honshu. It is the capital city of Osaka Prefecture and the largest component of the Keihanshin Metropolitan Area. Situated at the mouth of the Yodo River on Osaka Bay, Osaka is the second largest city in Japan by daytime population and the third largest city by nighttime population, serving as a major economic hub for the country.

Japan being an island nation has a population of 128 million, a coastline of 29 751 km and an EEZ of approximately 4.05 million km², which is the sixth largest in the world. A combination of warm and cold currents flows along the coasts, thereby creating one of the most abundant fishing zones in the world. Due to such geographical features, fisheries traditionally play a crucial role in food security in Japan, providing a diversified range of fish and fishery products which accounted for 61.2 kg per capita annual intake of the Japanese nation in 2005. The total fishery production of Japan was 5 million tonnes (excluding seaweed) in 2007, out of which 766 000 tonnes were derived from aquaculture. Japan accounted for the fifth largest capture fishery producer in the world in 2007.

Japan Fisheries Research and Education Agency, National Fisheries University of Japan, National Research Institute of Aquaculture, National Research Institute of Fisheries Science, National Research Institute of Far Seas Fisheries, National Research Institute of Fisheries and Environment of Inland Sea are some of the leading institutions devoted to maximize research and development on Aquaculture and Fisheries.

Market Value of Aquaculture and Fisheries:

The commitment of aquaculture to the world aggregate fish generation achieved 43.1%, up from 42.1% of every 2012. It was just 30.6% 10 years back in 2003. In the interim, worldwide generation of oceanic plants, for the most part kelp, is still overwhelmingly commanded by aquaculture (95.5% of every 2013). World aquaculture production kept on developing in 2013, achieving 97.2 million tons (live weight) with an expected estimation of USD157 billion. A sum of 575 sea-going species and species raised in freshwater, seawater and salty water have been enrolled in the FAO Global Aquaculture Production insights database. The generation of cultivated food fish (finfish, scavangers, molluscs and other oceanic creatures) was 70.2 million tons in 2013, up by 5.6% from 66.5 million tons in 2012. The generation of 27 million tons of cultivated aquatic plants was a 13.4% bounce on the 23.8 million tons of 2012.
