The PrimeFish Project
Icelandic research center Matís coordinates this project and Spanish Foundation CETMAR will be in charge of organizing this conference as the closing event for four years of research hand in hand with the industry and policy makers. The project has analysed the seafood value chain in more than 10 countries and has developed studies on consumers’ behavior in France, Italy, Germany, United Kingdom and Spain. Besides, this conference will serve as the launching pad for the prototype of a market-oriented software specialized on the seafood sector and based on big data and innovative research.
