Seafood Expo North America |March 17-19, 2019 |Boston, USA

17/03/2019 - 19/03/2019

Seafood Expo North America, the largest seafood event of its kind on the continent, will take place from 17 to 19 March in Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America. The three-day annual event will bring together thousands of buyers and sellers from around the world to do business, exchange ideas, and engage in productive conversations about emerging challenges in today’s seafood environment. The North American Expo offers the opportunity to raise awareness about the work FAO does in the fisheries and aquaculture trade sector.

In addition to the exhibition, several side events will take place focusing on different aspects of the seafood industry. FAO Fisheries and Aquaculture will contribute to the discussions with its expertise in the field of sustainability in the session Social sustainability in fisheries value chains, taking place on Monday, March 18th. Industry experts from across the supply chain will come together to discuss the role of international instruments and the importance of multi-stakeholder collaboration in safeguarding human rights throughout seafood value chains.

FAO will also join the session Building equity into sustainable seafood sourcing, being held on the last day of the event, aiming to raise awareness about fisheries contribution to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Joe Zelasney, Fishery Industry Officer (FAO), will present in this interactive session focusing on the opportunities that the SDGs provide for responsible businesses to engage with the world’s traditional, small-scale fisheries, and how businesses can demonstrate their commitment and contribution to the SDGs.

Similar to past years, FAO GLOBEFISH will participate in the Seafood Expo with a dedicated booth, intending to meet other representatives of the seafood industry and share ideas on how fisheries can contribute to sustainable development around the globe.

Seafood Expo North America is an event that GLOBEFISH looks forward to attending. We are especially excited to meet and talk with attendees. Please come and visit us at booth #190!
