The Evolving U.S. View of the Asian Seafood Market


February 27, 2019


Over the past decade, Asia has been regarded as one of the biggest growth opportunities for U.S. seafood exports. The enormous Chinese market, in particular, gobbled up an increasingly large share of U.S. exports of higher-end seafood products, such as lobster, oysters, snow and king crab, and geoduck. But a trade dispute between the United States and China beginning in 2018 – and resulting rounds of tariffs affecting seafood – have had a punishing effect on seafood trade between the two countries. In this webinar, find out how U.S. exporters have dealt with the tariffs, how they’ve scouted and expanded in alternative markets, and what they think the future holds for trade of U.S. goods in Asia.

Guests will include Mike Hutt, the executive director of the Virginia Marine Products Board; Hannah Lindoff, the international program director at the Alaska Seafood Marketing Institute; and Tom Adams, the CEO of Maine Coast, a Maine-based lobster exporter.
