Regional Business Session ‘Africa Seafood Market’
Transformations in established supply chains have compelled African countries to seek new suppliers for fish and seafood, leading to a shift in the range of supplies. While mackerel, blue whiting, herring, and other pelagic species continue to dominate consumption, notable increases in the import of cod and other white fish have been observed this year. These changes open up new avenues for fisheries interested in exploring fresh markets.
The series of business sessions, dedicated to the concrete regions, allow participants to discuss the overall situation in countries in context of sufficiency of their own fish resources, capacity for importing and opportunities for exporting of fish and seafood.
