ASA/WISHH Salutes Cambodian Aquaculturist Association Progress on World Fisheries Day

ASA/WISHH congratulates the Cambodian Aquaculturist Association (CAA) upon celebrating its one-year anniversary with more than 400 members ranging from fish farmers and distributors to feed millers and other industry partners. Celebrated each Nov. 21, World Fisheries Day highlights the critical importance fisheries play in the development of human lives, including the nutrients fish receive from their feedstock supply—in many cases, U.S. soy.

“ASA has just celebrated its 100th anniversary, and we recognize the CAA for its remarkable achievements in only one year. More than 400 members is a major milestone, especially during a pandemic,” said WISHH Chairman and ASA Director Gerry Hayden, a soybean grower from Kentucky. “The CAA is off to a great start, and U.S. soybean growers are proud to partner with you for your continued progress.”

Association development is integral to WISHH’s Commercialization of Aquaculture for Sustainable Trade-Cambodia (CAST), a U.S. Department of Agriculture Food for Progress Project. CAST accelerates production of high-demand fish species for the Cambodian market, develops a lasting aquaculture industry and promotes Cambodian-raised fish. CAST strengthens local production of high-quality feed and fish and builds a profitable market system for aquaculture products. Through CAST, Cambodia’s private sector and universities work closely with U.S. soybean growers and businesses as well as academic and non-governmental organizations.
