Need

Developing new ways to add value and increase the social licence of fishers remains a challenge for the fishing industry across the globe. The Australian seafood industry, and in particular small scale inshore fishers are under increasing pressure to meet community expectations, while still servicing a need to provide fresh locally caught seafood. The challenge remains how to balance these two needs.

Objectives

1. Increase the knowledge of the participants participating in the Local Seafood Summit to opportunities for new ways of promoting their industry
