 For the first time Russia, St Petersburg, is hosting the Global Fishery Forum and International exhibition for fishery, seafood and know-how (Global Fishery Forum and Seafood Expo) and with over 200 delegates attending from over 50 countries over two days, it promises to be an exciting event. 

 IFFO's Director General Andrew Mallison will participate in a two panel session and act as a moderator for one of the two plenary sessions. The aim of the forum is to identify main trends in the development of the modern world fish market, promote the expansion of trade and economic relations and scientific cooperation. A strategy for the development of Russia's fishing industry and export/import policies will also be discussed, making this a good opportunity to raise the profile of the marine ingredients industry, and IFFO in Russia. 

 IFFO's Andrew Mallison will be moderating the first day plenary session debate between several prominent Russian and international politicians and business interests. He will then be participating in a roundtable panel session titled 'Protectionism amidst Globalization of the Fish Industry' along speakers from the FAO, national fisheries groups and global companies such as McDonalds, presenting an overview of the marine ingredients industry. The panel will discuss current and future global trends, the effectiveness of free trade agreements and positive experiences and obstacles encountered by fishery companies in international trade. Following the panel on market opportunities, Mallison will also present in a panel on certification, discussing the benefits and challenges of certification schemes with reference to the IFFO Responsible Supply standard.
