FISHY DEBATE IN TOWN

 

Experts from around the world will converge on Grimsby for a conference at the end of the month to debate the latest developments in fish processing.

 

Organised by Prof Tony Taylor from the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside, the three-day conference will bring together research scientists and directors of international companies from Canada, Iceland and the Netherlands.

 

Grimsby Mayor George Mitchell will welcome delegates to the event which will begin at the town hall on 29th June.

 

Over the course of the three days delegates will hear speakers and discuss the quality and safety of fish products and contemporary issues affecting the industry as a whole.

 

Prof Taylor will be joined by Dr John Grigor and Tony Garthwaite from the university’s Food Research Centre who will also address the conference and accompany the delegates on a tour of ULH facilities.

 

Among the other speakers are the former Assistant Deputy Minister of the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, Canada, and David Robb from Bristol University.

 

This event is being jointly organised by the university, North East Lincolnshire Council and the Society of Chemical Industry.
