What is the Future of the Seafood Industry in Newfoundland and Labrador? The seafood industry continues to be an important economic driver of Newfoundland and Labrador’s economy at a time when other key sectors in the province are struggling. Looking to the future a tremendous opportunity exists to assist the industry in developing a more efficient and market oriented value chain to aggressively pursue new opportunities. This session will profile key trends in the seafood sector, identify global factors affecting it and will outline the role of research, technology and innovation in advancing the seafood value chain in the province.
