New York Sea Grant, in collaboration with industry, academic and other professional seafood stakeholders, offers its annual "NY Seafood Summit." 

The goal of the summit is to convene a group of enthusiastic professionals with vested interest in seafood to build active communications between the various sectors of New York's seafood industry. 

Each year at the summit we try to highlight some of New York’s bountiful seafood supply and introduce participants to the delicious, diverse, and versatile seafood’s available locally. 

The 2021 Seafood Summit was virtual.
