What will I learn?

What is taking place?

Hear from experts from industry, research and government; network and exchange ideas; see a range of practical presentations of the key themes around seafood consumption in the UK.

Have you ever wondered...

  • Which one is better for me: sardines, salmon or mussels?
  • Is it better for the planet to eat cod, pork or plants?
  • What is the best value fish to buy? Should I buy local?
  • What novel seafoods are there? Is seaweed tasty?
  • How can I feed my family well on a tight budget?
