The European Market Observatory for Fisheries and Aquaculture Products (EUMOFA) will host its latest talk "From Revolution to Evolution: The Fishery and Aquaculture Market in a Post COVID-19 World” at the Seafood Expo Global 2022 in Barcelona, Spain. The event will take place on 26 April 2022 at 12:45 at Fira Barcelona Gran Via.
The talk will look at the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the seafood sector. The seafood sector has been hard hit by COVID-19, but has the pandemic also brought new opportunities? Two years into the pandemic, is it high time to focus on new business opportunities, emerging markets and changes in consumer behavior? Has the experience gained during the pandemic made us better prepared to face other disruptive events, such as the effects of the current war in Ukraine?
EUMOFA has gathered a high-level panel of policy makers and business professionals to discuss the future of the seafood sector in the post-COVID-19 world
