The goal of the World Seafood Congress organisers is to build and enhance partnerships between IAFI members and all seafood professionals and specialists to benefit global seafood trade. It also aims to profile innovation in seafood and provide opportunities for maximum participation by all economies involved in seafood trade – including developed and developing economies. This is accomplished by various means throughout the international event– expert panels, debates, workshops and formal presentations.
The conference will provide interactive sessions on skills in the seafood sector, seafood sustainability, seafood innovation, seafood markets, Seafood Integrity, global export and trade. The Congress will feature high profile speakers from the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (CEFAS), Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), Seafish Industry Authority, as well as Academic establishments, NGO’s and Industry leaders.
The World Seafood Congress brings together a global audience of seafood processors and importers, academia, public and private organisations, fish inspectors and government. Each day will see discussions in trading initiatives and developments in the Seafood sector. Different countries outlooks on key issues will be explored as we enter an era which is forever changing, bringing new opportunities and challenges in sourcing and trading seafood.
