World Aquaculture Society Affiliates
The World Aquaculture Society (WAS) promotes affiliation with other organizations that have activities and interests that match the vision of WAS in promoting sustainable aquaculture development throughout the world.
Such affiliations are aimed at stimulating cooperative exchange of publications to enhance the benefits available to the membership of each society and to broaden the international exchange of information among aquaculture scientists and practitioners. They also provide opportunities to consider joint activities, such as conferences and workshops.
Such affiliations have so far proved to be mutually beneficial and in many instances have created common platforms for the sharing of information and the avoidance duplicated efforts. So far, 13 organizations have affiliated with WAS. The rapid growth of aquaculture is prompting the establishment of aquaculture associations in many countries. Those organizations that are interested in seeking affiliation to WAS are invited to contact the WAS Home Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) for details.
