SCOTLAND, UK - Seafish is looking ahead to this week's World Fisheries Congress in Edinburgh, with a busy schedule of presentations, workshops and events that will provide insight and comment on key industry issues.

Industry experts from the Seafish team will be presenting at the event on key industry issues ranging from fishmeal and aquaculture, to consumer insight on responsible sourcing, and the reduction of greenhouse gases in the global seafood industry.

The Congress, held every four years, is running from 7 - 11 May at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre. As one of the congress partners, Seafish is exhibiting for the duration of the event, where staff will be on hand to explain the role that the organisation plays in supporting the industry and the new direction that it will be taking following a discussion with industry earlier this year.
