Network Events and Training Courses

For a list of upcoming activities, events and training courses organised through the Seafood Network


    We are in discussions with a number of providers in Wales and plan to offer a range of programmes. Our core programmes will be in bivalve purification, fish quality assessment, fish smoking, filleting, fishmongering etc. Many of these programmes may be partially funded, subject to the availability of funding streams.


    Our Winter/Spring 2016/17 programme now available here.


    Workshops and courses available from November 2016 to March 2017.

    Our programme is based on feedback from this survey of training needs.
