Additional Value of Attending 

Over the course of the three-day trade fair, attendees can participate in seminars and panel discussions covering a diverse range of current topics. These sessions will delve into areas such as alternative proteins, sustainability, and CO2 reduction, providing valuable insights and fostering discussions within the industry. fish international combines its top-tier technological display with an engaging conference program, offering a comprehensive experience for visitors. 

The trade fair is where the biggest news stories about the industry are broken. In 2022, the event shone a spotlight on the consequences of climate change on the fish stocks in the North Sea and Baltic Sea with the increase in average water temperatures in the North Sea and Baltic Sea by up to 2° Celsius, which has contributed to the change of migration patterns. Fish international was the very first event to then focus on the solution to ensure the supply of protein to the world population - fish farming in aquaculture! 

The designated Seafood Business Meeting will facilitate networking and business-to-business opportunities for caterers, restaurateurs, retailers, and wholesalers in the seafood and fish farm equipment industries. The support programme keeps visitors fairly busy throughout the entire fair and offers visitors actionable advice.
