A congress exploring the contribution of fishery and aquaculture production and distribution to sustainable development, reflecting the interests of operators, workers along the supply chain and, crucially, consumers.
Date: Tuesday-Thursday, 25-27 September 2023
Fisheries and aquaculture production and distribution systems are at the heart of the blue bio-economy. As the supplier of the world’s most traded protein, the seafood sector has a pivotal role to play in building and maintaining global supply and distribution systems that ensure the delivery of safe, sustainable, and equitable products and services into the second half of the 21st Century.
The Polytechnic of Leiria, School of Tourism and Maritime Technology, and MARE – Marine and Environmental Sciences Centre in association with the International Association of Fish Inspectors (IAFI) will host the World Seafood Congress 2023 (WSC2023) will explore how to optimize the contribution of fishery and aquaculture production and distribution to sustainable development, reflecting the interests of operators, workers along the supply chain, and, crucially, consumers.
The Congress will bring together the businesses and people working in the global seafood trade and its supply chain. It will consider how to optimize their contributions and how the sector can adapt to the challenging dynamics of the physical, biological, informational, and socio-economic environment to ensure that businesses deliver safe, sustainable, and equitable products and services into the second half of the 21st Century.
WorldFish’s Director General, Essam Yassin Mohammed will attend to speak on 25 September 2023 on the role of aquatic foods in transforming food systems in the sub-forum on innovations and future food and agriculture.
Key Thematic Areas:
