Welsh fish promoted on world stage

Seven Welsh fishing companies are at an event in Brussels this week promoting their produce.

At the world's largest seafood fair, fisheries from across Wales are establishing international trade links and boosting their exports.

They'll be taking their produce to an audience of 25,000 seafood retailers, distributors, wholesalers, caterers, importers and processors.

The Lobster Pot, Thomas Shellfish, Bangor Mussel Producers, Selwyns Penclawdd Seafoods, Anglesey Aquaculture, W M Shellfish and The Pembrokeshire Beach Food Company will showcase their world-class produce on the Welsh Government's Food and Drink Wales pavilion.

The fisheries industry is an important contributor to Wales's coastal economy, with an estimated value of £30 million each year.

The Welsh Government says it is committed to ensuring the continued and sustainable growth of this valuable industry.
