Seafood and Fisheries Emerging Technologies Conference

By Stop Illegal Fishing:21st Sep, 2018:

13-16 February 2019

Bangkok, Thailand

The Seafood and Fisheries Emerging Technologies Conference started with a modest vision to explore and discover the potential of emerging, and potentially disruptive, technologies that could be applied to improve the conservation and management of our world’s fisheries.  While the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) led initial workshops and events, a broad coalition of Industry, Government, and Non-government institutions have come together to make the next event the biggest and best to date. Improvements in technology have almost always changed the world and this will be no different with respect to our oceans.  Are you ready for those changes?

Goals of the SAFET Conference

  1. Improve and clarify the understanding of the existing MCS and supply chain traceability environment.

  2. Objectively review emerging and advancing technologies that might contribute to less expensive and more efficient MCS and supply chain traceability.

  3. Advance future implementation of innovative emerging technologies in MCS and supply chain traceability applications where appropriate.

The Seafood and Fisheries Emerging Technologies (SAFET) Conference is convened back-to-back with the Global Fisheries Enforcement Training Workshop (GFETW), organised by the International Monitoring, Control, and Surveillance Network (IMCS Network), from 18-22 February 2019 in the same venue as the SAFET.
