The global and dynamic nature of today’s fishery products market make it essential that actors participating in fish trade are equipped with knowledge and skills to effectively improve their performance in responding to the demands of an increasingly complex and competitive business environment in domestic, regional and international markets. High consumer expectations, international food safety legislation, environmental concern and international trade regulations represent just some of the challenges being faced by fish trade actors in our country.
