|Description:||16th IIFET Biennial Conference 2012 - International Institute of Fisheries Economics and Trade|
|Location:||Dar es Salaam, Hyatt Regency Kilimanjaro, Tanzania|
|Subject:||The subject of the conference is "Visible Possibilities: The Economics of Sustainable Fisheries Aquaculture and Seafood Trade" The general theme of the conference will be revealing the hidden possibilities of fisheries in all areas of the world, with particular emphasis on Africa and developing regions. Participants are encouraged to reflect on the goods and services fisheries and aquaculture provide to human society and on the objective that fishery management and aquaculture development should provide contributions to human wellbeing whether through macro-economic growth (resource rents, trade revenues), small-business profits, wage labor, or nutritious food. These goods need to be weighed against the costs inherent in utilizing fish resources. Participants are also encouraged to examine and suggest solutions for resolving those aspects of fisheries management and aquaculture development that can hamper our ability to fulfill this objective, helping to avoid worsening poverty traps, ecosystem damage, and inequities amongst fishery and aquaculture stakeholders.
