Today marks the first day of the North Atlantic Seafood Forum (NASF) in Bergen, Norway.
The conference will take place over the next three days, with participants from several countries globally and will have 150 different speakers.
It is the seventeenth time the conference is being held, and this years’ conference will have 750 participants present.
This is also the first year where the conference will allow participants digitally.
Ann-Lisbeth Agnalt, researcher at the Institute of Marine Research and chair at International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES), started the conference by stating how important working together will be for the future of the industry.
“We need to share and learn from one another. Our industry needs to trust each other and by trust we become better. We need to work closer together,” she says.
