Seafood Expo Eurasia was held for the first time at Tüyap, Istanbul, earlier this May. The new global event has gained interest from the world fishery and aquaculture community and attracted an impressive crowd of attendees. Representatives from Türkiye’s Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and the Central Union of Aquaculture Producers, who supported the exhibition, highlighted Seafood Expo Eurasia’s role in promoting Turkish products internationally and strengthening Türkiye’s position as an emerging seafood hub.

2,073 attendees from 91 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America attended the expo, primarily for the conference’s aquaculture content. The presence of the fishery, aquaculture, and processing sectors was supplemented by representatives from logistic and packaging companies, shipyards, manufacturers of equipment and components, and other related areas crucial for fishery industry.

In addition to exhibitor presentations, which accounted for a large part of the expo, the event also featured a comprehensive business programme addressing the specifics of the promising regional seafood markets along with the key global industry issues. The sessions focused on the development of fish trade in Latin America, Africa, Türkiye, and Eurasia as a whole, as well as best practices in aquaculture, fish oils and fishmeal production, and seafood cold chain logistics.

“Organising an exhibition for the first time is a challenging task, but thanks to the support of our partners, exhibitors, and visitors, we have laid the foundation for future growth. We brought together the most important areas of the fishery and aquaculture industries, ensuring effective interaction between them. This guiding principle will help the fair expand accordingly,” said Anna Shelkova, Seafood Expo Eurasia show director, in a press release following the event.

In the wake of the success of the 2024 Seafood Expo Eurasia event, the dates for the 2025 edition of the conference will soon be announced.
