Rationale and scope
Cage aquaculture has a long history in Asia, but it is only in recent years that it has been widely practised and recognized for its potential, especially for off-shore cage culture in open sea. The first cage culture symposium was successfully held more than five years ago and the aquaculture community will be meeting again in Hangzhou city, China to discuss the recent advances, potentials, challenges and problems of cage aquaculture in Asia.

The second international symposium on cage aquaculture in Asia (CAA2) scheduled for 3-8 July 2006 will discuss the following topics:
* Recent advances and innovations in cage culture technologies
* Cage design, structure and materials
* Site and species selection
* Nutrition, feed, feeding technologies and management
* Disease prevention and health management
* Economics and marketing
* Sustainable management and development
* Policy and regulation
* Constraints to cage culture development
* Conflicts between cage culture and other stakeholders

This symposium is aimed at providing a forum to achieve the following objectives:
* To examine the recent advances and perspective of cage culture activities in Asian countries and in other regions
* To exchange information on cage culture among fish culturists, researchers, traders and planners
* To identify problems and research needs of cage culture
* To discuss sustainable culture technologies and management
