Young consumers are looking to take a bite out of life. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said of seafood - at least not yet. The youth comprising Generation Y and the upcoming Generation Z are eating less seafood despite knowing that fish and shellfish are healthy protein picks. How can the industry tap into this vast potential consumer pool and instill a lasting thirst for the delicacies of the sea? Join SeafoodSource and marketing expert Polly Legendre, former chef and founding principle of Polished Brands, in a discussion of seafood's future when it comes to Millennials and the consumers of tomorrow.
Starting a business can be a daunting task no matter what the industry, but in the competitive world of seafood, it can be a nightmare. In this webinar, we'll hear two success stories about small companies with big ideas figuring out how to make it work. For those who might be interested in a brand-new venture, or branching out on their own, we'll hear about what our presenters did right, and what the budding seafood entrepreneur should avoid.

Small-scale fisheries account for 95 percent of the world’s fishing fleet, but currently suffer from inadequate monitoring. Silicon Valley-based Pelagic Data Systems (PDS) has created a lightweight monitoring system for small vessels that can be used to combat illegal, unreported and unregulated (IUU) fishing and the exploitation of global fish stocks. Join PDS CEO Dave Solomon and the company’s chief scientific officer, Melissa Garren, as well as Jack Whalen of the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership, as they detail the current state of fisheries monitoring, what today’s technology can do to deter IUU fishing, and how technology is being used to fill data gaps at sea.
