: ‘CAA5’, the fifth edition of the International Symposium on Cage Aquaculture in Asia will be hosted by the Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute here between November 25 and 28.

The symposium is being organised by the Asian Fisheries Society and the Indian Council for Agricultural Research.

The symposium will be a platform for researchers, technologists, entrepreneurs and farmers to meet and share ideas on the current developments in the cage aquaculture.

The symposium is focussed on five major themes covering current developments in cage aquaculture and the future. More than 200 delegates from around the globe will participate in the symposium, said information posted on the CMFRI website.
