The U.S. Soybean Export Council hosted a global digital conference called “COVID-19 and the Implications to Aquaculture.” 

It featured almost 900 global customers and soybean industry representatives from 60 countries. 

The event focused on COVID-19’s impact on global aquaculture production and marketing supply chains. 

USSEC says as global markets adapt to these times, U.S. soy is ready to meet the needs of the global aquaculture industry.

“Our industry has always prioritized innovation and adaptability to better serve our customers and meet the needs within the global seafood industry, and the COVID-19 pandemic is no different,” says USSEC CEO Jim Sutter. 

“At USSEC, we’ve had an active program in aquaculture for 35 years, with partners ranging from small fish farms in Asia to other large international operations across the globe.” 

He says no matter who USSEC works with, their top priority is to proudly optimize and demonstrate the value and nutritional benefits of U.S. soy in aquaculture diets. 

By 2030, USSEC says 62 percent of all seafood produced for human consumption will be a product of aquaculture. With the help of U.S. soy, expanding feed-based aquaculture can address the needs of both supply and demand.
