Scotland seafood summit
SCOTLAND is to get its own seafood summit next year – days before the UK is due to leave the European Union.
The landmark event is being organised by Seafish and is a spin off from the UK-wide Seafood Summit, held near Scunthorpe last month, and its predecessor, the Humber Seafood Summit.
Seafish, the industry authority, said it took the decision to create a sister event due to its popularity in discussing and debating the challenges and issues affecting the seafood industry.
The two-day gathering will continue the theme ‘Seafood is the way Forward’ and give the industry in Scotland and beyond another opportunity to get together, particularly in the days before Brexit, scheduled for March 29, 2019.
The Scottish summit is due to take place at the Hilton Double Tree Hotel in Aberdeen, from March 26-29.
