The IV International Fisheries Forum and Exhibition of the Fish Industry, Seafood and Technologies SEAFOOD EXPO RUSSIA 2021 has started in St. Petersburg. The event takes place from 8 to 10 September at the Expoforum Convention and Exhibition Center.
This is an expected event for the entire fishery industry, which had to be postponed last year due to the epidemiological situation. Representatives of all areas of the fishing industry take part in the exhibition - from fishing at sea to delivery to the end consumer. These are fishing and processing companies, aquaculture and mariculture enterprises, developers of equipment for processing, fishing, equipping ships, shipbuilding and ship repair organizations, manufacturers of feed and additives, as well as companies offering solutions for packaging, storage, cargo transportation, banking, lending, insurance services.
An impressive area of the exhibition space is occupied by the exposition of the Federal Agency for Fisheries, where special attention is paid to the "Education" block. Traditionally, this section presents educational and research areas of Dalrybvtuz. This year, the opportunities of Dalrybvtuz are presented personally by the rector of the university, Oleg Scheka, who, in addition to the exhibition, also takes part in the events of the Global Fishery Forum business forum.
The key event of the educational section on the opening day of the exhibition was the official rewarding of the winners of the first-ever all-Russian competition in fish competencies of the National Championship "Young Professionals" (WorldSkills Russia). Let us remind you that on April 17 this year, on the site of the Far Eastern State Technical Fisheries University, the final competitions of the qualifying competitions for the Final of the IX National Championship "Young Professionals" (WorldSkills Russia) were held, which determined the championship winners. Then, in a bitter struggle for the title of the best specialist in the competence "Cultivation of fish seed and commercial fish", a student of the Vladivostok Marine Fisheries College of Dalrybvtuz specialty "Ichthyology and Fish Farming" Artyom Gurovsky managed to bypass the guys from the Astrakhan, Kaliningrad, Moscow regions, St. Petersburg, Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, for which he received a well-deserved award from the head of the Federal Agency for Fishery Ilya Shestakov at the SEAFOOD EXPO RUSSIA 2021 site.
