WHAT: The SeaWeb Seafood Summit is the world’s premier seafood sustainability conference, bringing together attendees from all facets of the seafood sustainability movement for a week of collaborative learning, networking and problem solving. The Summit is produced by Diversified Communications in partnership with SeaWeb.
Over the past 20 years, global interest in sustainable seafood products and practices has advanced dramatically, with hundreds of sustainable seafood initiatives now in operation. At the upcoming 15th edition of the Summit, stakeholders will explore the latest ideas and trends, including their future strategic, business and market implications.
