The one-year program is open for anyone that want to further develop their insight and knowledge of the global seafood industry, and the program will attract candidates with different expertise, education and positions.

Seafood Next Program

Seafood Next focus on sustainable growth and innovation throughout the seafood value chain. Through the program you will be meeting leading actors in the seafood industry, visiting fishfarms and hatcheries and getting insight about the most important megatrends in the industry.
