Chennai to host 19th India International Seafood Show next year

The Marine Products Export Development Authority (MPEDA) in association with the Seafood Exporters Association of India (SEAI) will organise the 19th India International Seafood Show (IISS), a biennial event at Chennai Trade Centre from January 10 to 12, 2014.

The 19th edition of IISS has an exhibition wherein all leading international and domestic companies will exhibit their equipment, products, services etc. along with a technical session, in which many world renowned experts on seafood sector will participate. Registration for the same can be done at and in all field offices of MPEDA. An early bird scheme with 25 per cent discount on normal rates will be available for those who register on or before September 30, 2013.

The 19th edition of IISS will project the sustained development of Indian seafood by adopting the theme of “Guilt free seafood from India.” This will highlight the tradition followed by Indian fishermen and aqua farmers to do their activities in a sustainable way and in harmony with nature making the seafood from India so pristine that can be consumed without any trace of guilt.

It will also showcase the state-of-the-art technology now being adopted by the Indian processing units to produce and export value added products. The event will bring together the Indian seafood exporting fraternity and the overseas buyers under one umbrella and enable them to interact and finalize future business dealings.

The Indian seafood industry has now come a long way with a major stand in the global seafood market. IISS 2014 will also present tremendous scope for tapping new avenues and introducing various technology and products to the global market. With multifold increase in the production of exotic species, Pacific White legged Shrimp (Litopenaeus vannamei), India is poised for enhancement in production infrastructure, which presents great opportunity to forge new partnerships and strengthen the existing relationship, for all the sectors associated with seafood industry.
