GAA seeks award candidates

The Global Aquaculture Alliance is looking for candidates for the inaugural Global Aquaculture Innovation Award.

The award recognises innovative practices that overcome production challenges or mitigate negative environmental or social impacts at Best Aquaculture Practices-certified aquaculture farms. 

Innovations can span the full range of farm activities, including wetlands conservation, feed management, water-quality management, effluent reduction, energy reduction, staff training, community relations, animal welfare, and health and nutrition. 

Three finalists will be invited and paid by award sponsor Novus to attend a semifinalist summit at the company's St. Charles, Missouri, USA, headquarters in the summer. 

The recipient of the award will receive a plaque, an all-expenses-paid trip to GAA's GOAL 2013 conference in Paris, France, and a US $1,000 cash prize.

The application deadline is 31 May.
