Director of Research Groups
The PrimeFish project focused on the production of seafood and how to improve the competitiveness of fisheries companies in the international market.
PrimeFish's goal was to identify the main reasons and make suggestions for improvements that could contribute to increased innovation and competitiveness and encourage growth within the industry.
PrimeFish was a four-year project in which a number of companies, research institutes and universities participated, as well as a considerable number of stakeholders, such as fisheries companies.
The PrimeFish project organized a workshop on competitiveness, marketing and value chain in fisheries and aquaculture in the CETMAR Foundation (Vigo, Spain). On the 6th of October 2017 international researchers on the fields of competitiveness, productivity and marketing will present a market-oriented prediction toolbox for the seafood sector (PrimeDSS).
Experts on fisheries and aquaculture economy of international research institutes as the Marine Institute (Canada), Matís (Iceland), University of Iceland, University of Pavia (Italy), Synthesis (Spain – Faroe Islands), TTZ Bremerhaven (Germany) and of the CETMAR Foundation will present the results of the project. The meeting will include dynamics to support interaction, review of results and dialogue among the participants.
