Humber Seafood Summit Announces Final Summit Agenda

08 August 2012, at 1:00am

UK - Seafish is pleased to announce the final programme is now available for the Humber Seafood Summit 2012 on the 19 and 20 September, hosted at the Humber Seafood Institute.

This two day event is funded by Seafish and arranged by a partnership of organisations in the Humber Seafood Group. The event will bring together a panel of respected industry and National Government speakers and delegates from across Europe.

The conference theme, The Big Issues will be introduced by Professor Callum Roberts, guest speaker at the official launch evening on the Wednesday 19th and author of Oceans of Life. His book has been the subject of much debate around sustainability and fisheries science within industry and in the media since its publication early this year.

Anita Barker, Chair of the Humber Seafood Group said: We have already received a great deal of interest in the event this year, and many delegates had registered before the programme was even confirmed. Our theme is The Big Issues, and we feel that the programme of speakers and presentations address many of them head on, giving the benefit of expert knowledge and a global perspective. We feel confident that attendance figures will continue to rise, ensuring that the event will also present a valuable opportunity for delegates to network, sharing knowledge and best practice, for the benefit of industry.

Speakers will present on a range of subjects, including the ongoing fight against illegal fishing at sea, global sustainability of a range of fisheries and consumer perceptions of seafood. The programme reflects the current industry focus on sustainability and promises to bring together leading experts to spark meaningful discussion on the current issues, and how the international picture is shaping up for the future.
