Will you join the Seafish Expert Panel?

Seafish will soon be calling for interested parties to join its new Seafish Expert Panel (SEP). This is a new initiative which is focused on ensuring that UK seafood businesses can draw upon the expert advice, knowledge and data they need to inform decisions to deliver increased business prosperity. Key to achieving this will be encouraging dialogue on science and innovation across the seafood sector.

There's a wealth of knowledge to be found down the quay.

Our new SEP will have two key priorities; assisting Seafish to provide adaptive science support to industry and working with industry through our network of advisory committees to help the industry to identify solutions to the issues it is facing.

The SEP will gather together a team of experts who have experience across a mix of fields including marine science, environmental management, food production, social responsibility, consumer behaviour, and risk management. This breadth of expertise reflects the varied needs of the sector, just like the work Seafish does to support the industry.

With this in mind the SEP will have a range of responsibilities, including:
  • Providing advice and peer review expertise to guide and improve the quality of Seafish outputs.
  • Identifying industry issues and helping to shape potential solutions.
  • Connecting industry, government and research institutes to build an effective information network to benefit the sector.

We will be actively recruiting members for the panel over the coming weeks. If you think you have the expertise we need, please contact Aoife Martin to register your interest or keep an eye on our website from late August.
