Conference Programme

Entitled ‘Fish Waste for Profit’, the 2nd Icelandic Fisheries Conference will cover the “big business” that the fish waste reuse sector is becoming and will provide attendees with knowledge on how to maximise the return on investment (ROI) from potentially discarded parts of the catch that can be turned into high value products for non-food sectors such as pharmaceutical and cosmetic.

Fish Waste for Profit 2017 explored the fish waste pyramid of value, including a variety of case study style presentations highlighting real life successes experienced by those in the processing sector and explained why discarded fish waste is becoming a big business.

This year's programme covered the various uses for fish waste; from the creation of products with large market capacities such as fertilisers, animal feeds and biofuels, and progressing to products requiring a high level of processing such as textiles, pharmaceuticals and cosmetics.The Icelandic Fisheries Conference was aimed at organisations looking to maximise ROI from their seafood products, and who wish to discover new innovations and industry insights whilst developing relations with key industry stakeholders.

As a speaker, delegate or sponsor at the conference, you would benefit from not only the ample networking opportunities and informative presentations from worldwide leaders in the processing sector, but also access to the 12th Icelandic Fisheries exhibition attended by over 15,000 fisheries professionals.
