WEFTA 2017

WEFTA is a platform in Europe for institutes engaged in fish processing, food science, seafood technology, health effects seafood and consumer topics.

The story of WEFTA started back in 1970 when the initiative was taken to bring together (young) scientists from the various fish technology institutes to discuss research activities of common interest. Since then yearly meetings/conferences are organised. After 46 years of annual conferences, the 47th WEFTA conference is taking place in Dublin!

Every year at the conference dinner, the WEFTA award is presented. An annual award can be given by WEFTA scientists who have contributed significantly and outstanding to the fields of seafood processing, seafood product development, seafood analytical methods, seafood safety, applied seafood science, seafood technology, seafood nutrition, aquaculture or consumer studies related to seafood.

The WEFTA award will be presented at the conference dinner on Wednesday 11th October 2017 by the chairperson of the Award Committee.
