17/11/2015: Taiwan International Fisheries and Seafood Show

International Aquafeed will be at the 2015 Taiwan International Fisheries and Seafood Show will be held from November 19 to 21 at Kaohsiung Exhibition Centre, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

Organised by Taiwan External Trade Development Council and WES Worldwide Expo Services Ltd, the Show will host 200 exhibitors at 400 booths in sections including Fishery Equipment and Technology, Aquaculture, Seafood and Value-added Seafood, Processing Equipment and Fishery Services as well as Overseas Exhibitors. This is the first professional exhibition in Taiwan that connects suppliers, wholesalers and retailers in the fishery industry. With a variety of displays, the show is expected to attract over 6000 domestic and foreign visitors, bringing in new business opportunities to Taiwan's fishery industry.

A century has passed since Taiwan started its fishery industry, which has achieved a balanced development in fishing, aquaculture, seafood processing, equipment manufacturing and logistic services. As an island country, Taiwan has an advantage in fishery development, with Southern Taiwan being a place of great importance. In 2013, Taiwan's fishery industry reached an NT$100 billion annual value of production, with 300,000 employees in related jobs, and was even ranked as having the world's third-largest catch in pelagic fishing.

Ever since the Taiwan International Fisheries and Seafood Show opened for registration, Taiwan Fishing Gear Manufacturing Industries Association and Fish Breeding Association of Taiwan have shown great support. Industry-leading companies in Taiwan, including Jong Shyn Shipbuilding Co Ltd, Y-Fang Sealing Machine Ltd, Go Rising Trading Limited, Grobest Holdings Limited, Toford Plastic MFG Corp, Wen Chi Seafood Company Ltd, Jaw Feng Machinery Co Ltd, Anko Food Machine Co Ltd, Chi-Yuan Ships Technology Co Ltd, Samsan Enterprise Company, Sun Rise E&T Corporation and Wei-I Foodstuff Co Ltd, are all participating as exhibitors.

A wide range of products from freezer-equipped ships, maritime satellite communication systems, food processing machinery, trawler boats, HDPE pipes, Bluefin tuna to fishing equipment and fish farming technologies and more will be showcased at the exhibition. In addition to Taiwanese companies, countries including South Korea, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Peru, Brazil and the U.S. will also set up country pavilions in the exhibition, while Quanzhou Branch of the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade (CCPIT) is setting up a Cross-Strait Fisheries and Seafood Show at the grand exhibition.

Events held during the exhibition include procurement meetings, fishery and seafood summit forums, fish master forums and new product presentations. Expected to boost Taiwan's fishery industry, this exhibition serves as a platform that allows technology exchange and information sharing among industry figures.

Times are changing and the world is now seeing growing concern over environmental issues. The fishery industry now faces a global crisis as we are draining ocean resources. With a firm industrial foundation and world-leading technologies, Taiwan is now able to artificially breed over 100 aquatic species, including being one of the first nations to successfully breed six of the seven artificially bred grouper species in the world. Owning a complete germplasm bank, the fishing industry is the typical 'hidden champion' of Taiwan's traditional industries, providing the perfect edge for global industrial transition and upgrade. The 2015 Taiwan International Fisheries and Seafood Show will present a complete picture of the accomplishments that Taiwan's fishery industry has achieved, and will serve as the best platform in Asia for promoting sustainable fishery and seafood transactions.
