Working locally in the UK
The seafood industry’s needs differ around the UK. The expertise within the Industry Engagement Team at Seafish reflects this diversity. We have Industry Engagement Managers based in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. Each Manager has a skill set complementing the needs of the industry they serve.
Specific information on the work we do in each region is available on the following pages:
How we work locally
We celebrate the fantastic seafood and the people and businesses who supply it across the UK.
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.
We partner with industry to provide timely support on the local issues they face.
Each Industry Engagement Manager offers expert advice and guidance. Our Industry Engagement Managers also signpost enquiries and issues to Seafish colleagues. This ensures easy access to the full range of support we have to offer. That support could be on regulation, training needs or technical advice.
Local Advisory Committees
In some areas, the work of our Industry Engagement Team is informed 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 us on the specific needs of industry locally.
