About TARS

The Aquaculture Roundtable Series (TARS) is designed as a series of roundtable sessions to focus on specifics of the industry. TARS is a stakeholder-driven platform where industry, academia, governments and NGOs come together to provide input and deliberate on key issues related to aqua feed, shrimp and fish aquaculture sectors.

The vision of TARS is to build Asia’s aquaculture into a responsible, sustainable and profitable industry, with participation from all stakeholders to achieve a common goal towards this endeavour.

Since its inception in 2011, TARS has continuously served as an effective communication channel for knowledge transfer at the plenary sessions. The breakout group sessions facilitate interactive information exchanges aimed at addressing current issues and problems.

In the last seven years, TARS has covered the following sectors: Aqua Feed in 2011 & 2015, Shrimp Aquaculture in 2012, 2014 and 2016 and Finfish Aquaculture in 2013 and 2017.

The theme for TARS 2018 is Shrimp Aquaculture: Need for Change
