Internacional Conxemar-FAO Congress 2022: Seafood processing and trading. Current and future challenges

The Conxemar Association will hold the X Conxemar-FAO Congress on Monday October 3rd at the Centro Social Afundación in Vigo. In this edition, the event will bring together leading experts and professionals in the field of fisheries to analyse the current and future challenges of the fishing industry, after a global pandemic, a historic logistical bottleneck and in a complicated context of inflation, high costs for the industry and loss of consumer purchasing power.

The Congress, that will be presented by the master of ceremonies Mago More, will have a dynamic and modern format, featuring several monographic sessions and round tables, focusing on economics, transport, the current situation of the production markets of the most relevant species and future strategies.
