New York Seafood Summit
Seafood Safety and Technology - News

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, in order 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. 

You can check out a news archive that highlights previous seafood summits.

Agenda | PDF

At the upcoming summit we plan to review progress and achievements since our last summit in 2019 and discuss a variety of relevant topics surrounding seafood in New YOrk State. Through these discussions we hope to identify specific focus areas, which the group can target to achieve the mutually beneficial goals of promoting and protecting the seafood and seafood resources throughout NY State. These goals will be attained through the development of active communication and sharing of resources among the various entities of the New York seafood industry. 

Each year at the Summit attendees are given the opportunity to share a project, initiative, or opportunity that they are working on/towards with those attending the event.  These 2-3 minute lightning talks are open to all attendees but we ask that those interested in sharing ensure they adhere to the lightning talk guidelines outlined below. 


Each year at the Seafood Summit attendees are allowed to share a short project, initiative or idea they are working on in support of the mission and vision of the summit. 

Mission: to bring together the multiple sectors of the NY seafood economy to find innovative solutions to problems, and increase regional, national and international exposure of NY seafood. 

Vision: to become a primary venue to develop integrated approaches to complex seafood problems.

Attendee lightning talks Inclusion criteria: to present at the NY Seafood Summit we require you to be directly involved in the project you are presenting and make clear any potential or real conflicts of interest. We welcome all parties that seek to better NY seafood, and ask that your presentation be honest and clearly describe your role and anticipated outcomes. 

Note: Due to increased attendance we cannot guarantee all interested parties will get a time slot for the lightning talks. Slots will be filled on a first come first served basis as long as they meet the above mentioned inclusion material.
