Seafood_Expo_205 May 2011, Brussels, Belgium ---  The Philippines participated for the first time at the European Seafood Exposition, which was held on 3 to 5 May 2011 in Brussels, Belgium.  Spearheaded by the Department of Agriculture, in cooperation with the USAID - Growth with Equity in Mindanao, ten (10) companies from the Philippine seafood industry came to Brussels to take part in the trade fair. 

 Now on its 19th year, the European Seafood Exposition in Brussels is the world's largest seafood fair that attracts buyers and sellers from all corners of the globe.  The exposition allows both countries and seafood companies the chance to promote their export products to global buyers in an atmosphere where even purchasing decisions can be made on the spot. 

It is an annual event that features more than 1,600 exhibitors, representing all categories of seafood products, including fresh, canned, frozen, and value-added seafood; storage, processing, and handling equipment; a host of seafood-related services including freight-handling, insurance, and information technology. 

The major seafood products that the Philippine delegation promoted included tuna (canned, fresh and frozen fillets), sardines (canned and dried), scad (whole frozen or dried), milkfish (frozen and smoked fillets), whole frozen octopus and squid. 

In the Philippines, about one (1) million metric tons of tuna, sardines, mackerel scad,     octopus, and squid are harvested by large fleets of purse seine and handline boats annually.   An additional 1.2 million metric tons of milkfish, tilapia, groupers, and prawns are grown in aquaculture ponds and sea cages.  Seaweed farming produces about 800,000 metric tons of eucheuma which is processed into carrageenan, one of Europe's major imports.

On the evening of May 3rd, Ambassador Enrique A. Manalo received the delegation at a dinner reception at the Embassy and held informal discussions with the Department of Agriculture officials and exporters on how the Embassy can help in promoting Philippine seafood products to the EU market.
