Seafood Expo Eurasia was held for the first time at Tüyap, Istanbul on May 15-17. The new global event has gained interest from the world fishery and aquaculture community, as well as the host country. Representatives from Türkiye’s Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and the Central Union of Aquaculture Producers, who supported the exhibition, highlighted Seafood Expo Eurasia’s role in promoting Turkish products internationally and strengthening Türkiye’s position as an emerging seafood hub.

This year, 2,073 attendees from 91 countries across Europe, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America joined the expo. Visitors were primarily interested in aquaculture, followed by finished fish products and their distribution. Fishery, aquaculture and processing sectors were supplemented by logistic and packaging companies, shipyards, manufacturers of equipment and components and other related areas crucial for fishery industry.

Among the notable attendees were COMHAFAT/ATLAFCO delegation led by President Sidi Tiémoko Touré, and a Saudi Arabian delegation led by Ibrahim Alzahrani, Director of Aquaculture of the National Livestock and Fisheries Development Program.

In addition to exhibitor presentations, Seafood Expo Eurasia featured a comprehensive business program addressing the specifics of the promising regional seafood markets along with the key global industry issues. The sessions focused on the development of fish trade in Latin America, Africa, Türkiye, and Eurasia as a whole, as well as best practices in aquaculture, fish oils and fishmeal production, and seafood cold chain logistics.

Organizing an exhibition for the first time is a challenging task, but thanks to the support of our partners, exhibitors, and visitors, we have laid the foundation for future growth. We brought together the most important areas of the fishery and aquaculture industries, ensuring effective interaction between them. This guiding principle will help the fair expand accordingly,” said Anna Shelkova, Seafood Expo Eurasia Show Director.
