The Aquaculture Roundtable Series (TARS)® initiated in 2011 is a stakeholder-driven effort to facilitate the sharing and exchange of information and experiences for a common goal, to equip the industry with the next phase of growth. It is a platform for all – public, private sector, academia, government and non-government organizations to share new knowledge, deliberate on critical issues, and identify strategies for improvement – to ensure a sustainable aquaculture industry for the next generation. TARS is designed as a series of roundtable sessions to focus on specific sectors of the industry.
In the past nine years, TARS covered the following sectors: Aquafeeds in 2011, 2015 & 2019; Shrimp Aquaculture in 2012, 2014, 2016 & 2018; and Finfish Aquaculture in 2013 & 2017.
The theme for TARS 2021 is Shrimp: Markets • Margins • Productivity
