With just a couple weeks to go before the Seafood Expo North America (SENA) resumes after a COVID-caused two-year hiatus, Trident Seafoods, one of the world's largest seafood companies, said Monday that while it will be exhibiting at the event it will have a scaled-down presence to protect its employees.

A number of large seafood companies, including Mowi, the world's largest salmon farmer; Cermaq; Peter Pan Seafood; High Liner and others, announced in recent months they would not exhibit at this year's event because of ongoing concerns over the coronavirus.
