Working locally in the UK

We have Regional Managers based throughout the UK. They work locally to provide support and ensure easy access to our information and services.

The seafood industry’s needs differ around the UK and the expertise within the regional team at Seafish reflects this diversity. We have Regional Managers based in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Each Manager has a skill set complementing the needs of the industry they serve.

More specific information on the work we do locally is available on the relevant regional page: 

How we work locally

As well as directly aiding industry through their own expertise, our Regional Managers signpost enquiries and issues to Seafish colleagues. This ensures easy access to the full range of support Seafish has to offer. That support could be on regulation, training needs or technical advice.

Our aim is to partner with industry to provide timely support on the issues they face locally. We create and contribute to projects, events and initiatives that celebrate the fantastic seafood available and the people and businesses who supply it. We assist all types of seafood businesses, organisations and individuals across the supply chain. Having our people located across the UK means we can:

  • Assist businesses or individuals with their questions or queries;
  • Bring people together to work on projects, ranging from scientific to educational initiatives;
  • Support industry by promoting the work underway;
  • Provide knowledge sharing through webinars, conferences and events.

Regional Advisory Committees

In some areas, the work of the Seafish Regional Team is governed by Advisory Committees. These are made up of representatives from across the seafood supply chain. The Advisory Committees oversee our work programme in their area. This guides Seafish on the specific needs of industry locally.
