I fly out of Washington, D.C., today to attend the China Fisheries and Seafood Exposition, being held November 2 to 4 in Dalian, China, where I’ll also participate in the second Sustainable Seafood Forum beforehand on November 1. The forum is a day-long seminar designed to encourage the Chinese seafood industry and its global partners to connect with the issues of sustainability and support explore initiatives.
I’ll be joined by SeaWeb's Vice President of Sustainable Markets Melanie Siggs, who will moderate a panel on "How Sustainable is Chinese Seafood? China's Attitude Towards Seafood Sustainability.” SeaWeb will also be hosting a booth in the Sustainable Seafood Pavilion on the show floor of the Expo. I am sure to see some exciting panels covering hot topics, such as forage fisheries role in aquaculture and why more buyers are now demanding sustainable products.
Join us as we meet new people and hear perspectives on seafood sustainability from China!
