Mission Kitchen - a London-based collaborative project for culinary startups - has announced a full-day symposium, part of its Tomorrow's Table event series, to explore the trends, challenges and issues affecting the seafood industry. As concerns over the sustainability of seafood consumption continue to mount, and wild fish populations decline, the event will bring together industry leaders and experts on 23 May 2024, to debate the critical factors and developments that can help reimagine and rebuild the future of the sector.

The highly anticipated event, titled “The Future of Fish," promises a day of insightful panel discussions, workshops, cooking demos and food-tasting experiences, and will culminate in a networking banquet showcasing the best of the ocean bounty and plant-based innovations.

The event will host an exciting lineup of speakers and sessions such as the exploration of sustainable seafood sourcing, production, and provenance, led by representatives from Offshore Shellfish and the SEA Alliance; a deep-dive on alternative seafoods, featuring pioneers such as Pacifico Biolabs; and a spotlight on the leading women of the industry, such as Elaine Lorys, the UK’s first master female fishmonger.

“The Future of Fish is part of our Tomorrow’s Table series, designed to provide a global forum to debate critical food matters. The focus on fish is a logical progression, with media attention on the state of our oceans at an all-time high, not just in relation to the sustainability agenda but also in response to the diverse range of economic and political factors increasingly governing the availability of fish to feed the nation,” said Mission Kitchen co-founder and creative director Paul Smyth, in a press release.

“With such a diverse range of more than 100 speakers and delegates participating in this ground-breaking initiative, we are looking forward to plenty of constructive, thought-provoking discussion and access to valuable expert insight which we plan to share with the wider audience at a later date,” he added.
