Shows, shows -- so many shows.

The seafood industry, given its diversity in geography and scope, may be one of the best-served sectors in the world when it comes to trade events.

With so many events to attend, it’s sometimes a wonder anybody gets any work done. It’s easy for fatigue to set in, and increasingly, events are lacking as many “recognizable” faces as they once did.

Certainly Brussels and Boston are a "must go" for the industry, but only a select few other events are seen as truly critical, and for the whitefish sector, the Groundfish Forum is right at the top -- if you’re invited to the exclusive gathering, that is.
