Media Release


20 September, 2021

Sydney Fish Market is passionate about the health and viability of fisheries in Australia, and around the world. As Australia’s ‘Home of Seafood’, we are driven by opportunities to collaborate with other industry bodies to ensure the strength of Australian fisheries for future generations. 

Held every four years, the 8th World Fisheries Congress is the key international fisheries conference, bringing research, industry, and management sectors together to discuss the latest advances in fisheries management worldwide.  

The event (held entirely online this year) aims to foster cooperation and engagement in commercial, recreational, and indigenous fisheries, by providing a platform for insightful presentations and inspiring forums on key developments needed to ensure the future sustainable development of the world’s oceans, lakes, estuaries, and rivers. 

Sydney Fish Market CEO Greg Dyer is proud to have been chosen to speak at this esteemed event, to showcase to the Congress the opportunities provided to the industry by SFM’s upcoming redevelopment and business expansion. 

SFM is the lifeblood for fishers, aquaculturalists and co-operatives throughout NSW and beyond. Already representative of the industry standard in responsible sourcing, quality assurance, and seafood labelling, SFM intends to leverage the opportunities provided by this year’s Congress to further advocate for sustainability, implement improved fisheries practices, and foster trade efficiencies across the seafood industry. 

Events like the World Fisheries Congress strengthen pride in the Australian seafood industry, and represent the Australian fishing industry’s passion for improving the management of our local fisheries, according to best practice research and technological developments.
