Aquaculture endorsed by eleven Latin American Countries

The second meeting for the Ministers of the Aquaculture Network was held to discuss a few issues including the demand for producing more fish and possibly lowering the costs of fisheries-aquaculture resources in Latin America and the Caribbean.

There were mixed feelings about this debate between the Deputy Minister of Livestock in Paraguay and the Deputy Minister of Peru, who expressed the importance of the aquaculture sector. The Deputy Minister of Paraguay argued that it is a tool for improving the quality of society’s life.

Eleven American ministers joined and explained the guidelines in depth and shared strategy to heighten the volume to farmers with limited resources. Attendees embraced this positive food advantage for Latin America, while the head of Fisheries in Brazil emphasized that aquaculture is an important activity for the fight against hunger and for generating employment and income.

It seems that the Council of Ministers of the Aquaculture Network of the American Continent all agreed upon the same commitment to Fisheries and Aquaculture. The future of Aquaculture in Latin America and the Caribbean is bright!
