Pressing challenges in the seafood industry, including labor rights, climate change, and sustainability, took center stage at the 2024 edition of the Seafood Expo Global, held in Barcelona from April 23rd to 25th. With a record-breaking attendance of over 35,000 professionals from around the globe, this year's conference marked its largest edition ever, providing a platform for industry leaders to explore the latest trends and innovations.
