Fish Farmer - - All The Latest Industry News From The Uk -

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.
