The SeaWeb Seafood Summit, the world’s premier conference on sustainable seafood, will take place 9 to 11 February 2015, in New Orleans. SeaWeb is collaborating with Diversified Communications of Portland, Maine, to produce the event.

“We are elated to have the dates set for the next Seafood Summit and confirm New Orleans as a hosting city,” said Mary Larkin, VP-seafood group at Diversified, at a press briefing at Seafood Expo North America in Boston on Monday.

Many stakeholders, including seafood industry professionals, conservation groups, policy makers, academics and media gathered for the occasion.

The last Seafood Summit took place in 2012 in Hong Kong. Monday’s forum provided an opportunity for expo attendees to share their ideas and priorities for the upcoming event.   

“We are eager to begin working with our partners around the globe on creating an exciting program for the next Summit,” said Dawn Martin, president of SeaWeb. “This collaboration with Diversified will enable us expand the reach and provide a more robust level of engagement of key stakeholders aimed at offering sustainable solutions.”

The SeaWeb Seafood Summit brings together global representatives from the seafood industry with leaders from the conservation community, academia, government, and the media for in-depth discussions, presentations, and networking around the issue of sustainable seafood. The Summit aims to foster dialogue and partnerships that lead to a seafood marketplace that is environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable.

The SeaWeb Seafood Summit is produced in partnership between SeaWeb and Diversified Communications. SeafoodSource.com, Diversified’s online publication, will be the official international online business tool to keep seafood industry professionals informed and connected on the Summit’s program and events.
