Fish Waste for Profit - The 12th Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition is pleased to announce the return of the popular Icelandic Fisheries Conference, following a successful inaugural year in 2014. The Conference, entitled Fish Waste for Profit, will return to the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition on 14th September 2017.
The Icelandic Fisheries Conference provides attendees with the knowledge on how to maximise their return on investment from potentially discarded parts of the catch that can be turned into high value products for non-food sectors such as the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and agricultural industry.
This year’s conference will benefit from the support of the Iceland Ocean Cluster, a company that specialises in value creation by connecting entrepreneurs, businesses and knowledge in the marine industry.
The IceFish Conference will deliver case study based presentations, selected with the aim of informing attendees about recent industry developments and the 'big business' that fish waste is becoming.
The various sessions at this year's conference will take the form of a pyramid of value, exploring the use of fish waste with little additional processing, for example as fertiliser, and progressing to investigate more intensive processing, resulting in the creation of products suitable for human consumption, cosmetics and pharmaceuticals.
There will be a special focus on investment at the IceFish Conference 2017.
The IceFish Conference is a must for anyone looking to maximise Return on Investment (ROI) from their seafood products, and discover new innovations and industry insights, as well as means of developing relations with key industry stakeholders.
