Seychelles’ seafood industry shines once again at world’s largest seafood EXPO

Seychelles’ seafood industry has made a remarkable impression at this year’s Seafood Expo Global currently being held in Barcelona, Spain.

The event, which marks its 30th edition, has become the largest in history, with 2,244 companies from 87 countries showcasing their products and services. Following the success of its participation last year, Seychelles’ local fish exporters and government partners have come together to exhibit the best of the country’s ocean products at the Expo.

The Seafood Expo serves to connect seafood suppliers and related services to local, regional, and global marketplaces, while promoting sustainable fisheries and aquaculture.

Under the esteemed umbrella of the Association of Fish Processors and Exporters Seychelles (AFPES), Gemini Fishing Company, Marlu Seychelles, Ocean Basket, and Tuna Exporters (Seychelles) are at the forefront of Seychelles’ representation this year.

The Seychelles pavilion, located in the first hall of the Expo, is a collaborative effort between the Ministry of Fisheries and the Blue Economy, Seychelles Fishing Authority, Seychelles Investment Board, and the private sector. Seychelles’ diverse and high-quality seafood is being showcased at the Expo, with fresh fish selections such as yellowfin tuna, red snapper, and grouper. The Central Common Cold Storage (CCCS) has also made its debut at the Expo, highlighting the increasing importance of the service sector in Seychelles’ seafood industry.

The Seychelles pavilion has already garnered significant interest from buyers, who are relishing the sashimi products crafted by the local and foreign chef team while engaging with suppliers and service providers. The Expo is expected to further enhance the reputation of Seychelles’ seafood industry and provide promising new market opportunities for its growing private sector.

The success of Seychelles’ participation in the Seafood Expo Global is a testament to the country’s commitment in promoting its seafood products, and it is hoped that it will continue to shine on a global scale.
