The first Icelandic Fisheries Conference, ‘Fish for Waste Profit’ will be held on Thursday 25 September during the Icelandic Fisheries Exhibition and is a must for anyone looking to maximise ROI from their seafood products.

The new conference, organised by Mercator Media Ltd, is being pioneered by the Icelandic government, companies already involved in processing the whole fish and research company Matís.

The future of fishing relies on innovation and development, and the conference will provide a unique opportunity to learn from companies already involved in this process. Limited resources of certain species of fish mean that companies are looking to achieve zero waste. This will not only benefit the environment but also provide an increase in sales revenue.

The three conference sessions will address the issues and techniques of how to utilise the entire fish and maximise returns.

Session one – Wild demersal species: In cod we trust
An innovative session from the companies who are using this technology today to adapt the manufacturing and processing lines to maximise return by utilising the entire fish, with no wastage.

Session two – Wild pelagic
This session will address how wild pelagic can join the fish waste revolution.

Session three - Cultivated species
This session will finish the one-day conference by looking at cultivated and farmed species and how they can also provide ROI for processors and catchers.

Speakers include experts from organisations such as Matís, Iceland Ocean Cluster, SINTEF, Skaginn, TripleNine and Marel.

The full conference programme is available to view online here.
