Digital half-day symposium, «Harvest control of the future. Challenges and Technological possibilities.»

April 6th, 9am – 11am CET



In many ways, the digital symposium this spring is an introduction to this year’s Nor-Fishing exhibition, where we will focus on the global problems of overfishing and fisheries control.

Take part as some of the industry’s leading researchers and experts gather on screen, to discuss challenges, technologies and solutions to one of the world community’s biggest problems!

Among the speakers are Per Erik Berg, who will talk about the experience of establishing fisheries control regulations in Namibia and former Minister of Fisheries and Ocean Policy Helga Pedersen, who in her time as minister negotiated several international cooperation agreements.

All presentations are in English, and participation is free. We look forward to seeing you on screen!
