普菲斯全球水产养殖创新领导奖甄选启动

发布时间:2014-07-22
The Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) is accepting applications for the Preferred Freezer Services Global Aquaculture Innovation & Leadership Award, the organization announced on July 2. This is the second consecutive year that GAA has offered the award, which is designed to recognize innovative practices that overcome production challenges or mitigate negative environmental or social impacts at aquaculture farms.

This year the award has been expanded to include leadership, to coincide with the GOAL 2014 theme, “Celebrating Leadership.” Applicants who demonstrate a dedication to the ecosystems and communities in which they operate above and beyond the requirements of government and third-party certification schemes like the Best Aquaculture Practices   (BAP) will also be considered.

This year’s award is being sponsored by Preferred Freezer Services, one of the sponsors of GAA’s GOAL 2014 conference in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, from Oct. 7 to 10.

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. Both individuals and companies performing activities related to aquaculture farming are welcome to submit applications, and third parties may also submit nominations. Although participation in the BAP program is not required, applicants associated with BAP certification will receive preferential review.

The application deadline is July 31.

Application Form

To submit a candidate, please click on the hyperlink above, fill out the form and e-mail the application to BAP Standards Coordinator Dan Lee at dangaelle@aol.com. Candidates are asked to send a one- to two-page narrative that includes the names of the author and applicant, the location and description of the facility, and a description of the innovation and its environmental or social benefits. Please include high-resolution digital photographs that illustrate the facility and its innovations.

The recipient of the award will receive a plaque, an all-expenses paid trip (including registration, airfare, hotel and meal expenses) to GAA’s GOAL 2014 conference and a U.S. $1,000 cash prize. The winner will also get the opportunity to present the innovation at GOAL 2014, in GAA’s Global Aquaculture Advocate magazine and on the GAA website.

The members of the selection committee are Lee, GAA President George Chamberlain, BAP Standards Oversight Committee members Dawn Purchase of the Marine Conservation Society and Michael Tlusty of the New England Aquarium, and two representatives of Preferred Freezer Services.
