Seafish Wales Advisory Committee (SWAC)

The Seafish Wales Advisory Committee (SWAC) provides a forum by which the seafood industry in Wales, through its representatives, can input into the decision making process of Seafish.

The core membership of SWAC is representative of the Welsh industry, from fishing and aquaculture, distribution and processing, through to retail and foodservice. Welsh Government representatives, Natural Resources Wales and scientists also attend meetings to provide updates and information as required. SWAC therefore provides a useful platform for liaison between different Welsh seafood sectors and these other bodies.

The next Seafish Wales Advisory Committee will be held April 2020. If there is anything you'd like to raise at this meeting please contact Dr Holly Whiteley, details on the right.

With the support of Seafish, SWAC have developed a 'Wales Seafood Strategy' which outlines the Committee's for sustainable growth. The Strategy can be viewed in Welsh and English.

The agendas and minutes of all previous meetings are published and available to download on the right, once ratified by the Committee.
