    The extraordinary expansion of processing capabilities and rising consumer spending on seafood products within the ASEAN region are growing continuously. World fish consumption is projected to increase by 21% in 2025 to 178 million tons and Asia will be accounting for 73% of the total increase and consuming more than two-thirds of the available seafood supply.

    Nowadays, Asian countries are not only a key market for seafood importers, but also for exporters who might find many opportunities as well as challenges. Regulations, compliance with local directives, entry barriers and the current situation caused by COVID-19 can be an obstacle to overcome if you don’t have the proper expertise.

    How can you find reliable seafood suppliers in Asia and can you ensure they are verified based on the latest regulations?
    Will my cargo be delayed due to COVID related restrictions?
    What are the opportunities in the Asian market in the seafood industry?
