Increasing America’s Per Capita Seafood Consumption 25% by 2023
Widespread acceptance of seafood continues to elude the industry. While consumers know many ocean-fisheries are badly depleted, with scarcities creating prices only the wealthy can afford, they’re also told that farmed fish, once considered the solution, is deeply flawed, and characterized by widespread disregard for the environment and reckless use of antibiotics. Frozen seafood isn’t considered a high-quality option either, as consumers continue to be told that nothing beats fresh. The truth about farmed and frozen seafood is a different story, a story whose widespread dissemination would get seafood moving forward.
A veteran seafood journalist, the Sr. Director of Seafood for the global leader in foodservice, the Retail Seafood Director of one of America’s most successful Seafood programs, and a visionary who is successfully introducing a farmed, frozen seafood product to America will talk about the increasingly important role farmed and frozen seafood plays in their respective businesses, as well as present their thoughts as to how the misconceptions surrounding farmed and frozen seafood can be addressed in such a way that the ultimate consumer comes to understand and appreciate the both.
