Global Aquaculture Alliance promises “two exciting announcements” at Brussels show Published:  22 April, 2013

THE United States based Global Aquaculture Alliance (GAA) says it is preparing to make “two exciting announcements” regarding the Best Aquaculture Practices certification programme at the European Seafood Exposition in Brussels tomorrow (Tuesday).

Details are being kept under wraps until 10.30 am tomorrow morning when the announcements will be made in  Hall 9, Stand 4062 of the Brussels Exhibition & Conference Centre and again on Wednesday, April 24, at 10:30 a.m.

BAP Standards Coordinator Dan Lee, BAP vice president  of Development, Peter Redmond and Emil Avalon, BAP business development manager for Europe, have said they will be on hand to deliver the announcements, and to provide an update on Best Aquaculture Practice activities as well as field questions from the press and the industry. Also, the organisers say those who attend one of the two press conferences, or both, will be able to enter a draw to win a complimentary registration to GAA’s GOAL 2013 conference in Paris in the autumn.

More than 25,000 members of the world’s main fishing and seafood companies from 70-plus countries will be heading towards Brussels this week for what is by far the world’s largest seafood show.

British hopes of winning a major prize in the Seafood Prix d’Elite New Products Competition are high with UK companies providing nine of the 42 global entries, including seven from the Norfolk-based Big Prawn Company. Now in its 13th year, the Seafood Prix d’Elite New Products Competition recognises the best new seafood products of the year developed mainly for the European market.
