New technologies in the fishing sector will be in the spotlight at the 5th Halieutis Show, which will be held from 21 to 24 February 2019 in Agadir.
This show, organized under the patronage of King Mohammed VI, is dedicated to the various professions of sea fishing, aquaculture and the valorization of seafood products.
The theme of this edition will focus on: “New technologies in fishing: for a better fishery contribution in the blue economy”.
Over the years, this trade fair has become a key player in the “Halieutis 2020 Strategy” initiated by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries, bringing together national and international operators for five days, on more than 16.000 m2 of exhibition.
“Halieutis is a showcase of a sector and products, as it is also an excellent international benchmark tool. In other words, it is a powerful tool for commercial outreach,” says the show’s general curator Mohamed Bouayad on the event’s website.
This fifth edition, which coincides with the decade of the Halieutis strategy, will highlight the Kingdom’s progress in the fisheries and aquaculture sector as well as the actions and projects implemented to ensure sustainability, performance and improved competitiveness of this key sector of the national economy.
The organizers aspire to receive 300 national and international exhibitors and 50,000 visitors.
The 2019 edition will focus on six areas: Fleet and gear, Valorisation and international process, Training, Animation and Institutional. In addition to stands, the program also includes thematic conferences, B to B meetings and workshops.
In Morocco, sea fishing generates an annual production of more than one million tons, placing the Kingdom at the forefront of African producers and the 25th worldwide.
