KAOHSIUNG, TAIWAN – The 2017 Taiwan International Fisheries & Seafood Show kicked off on Nov. 9 at the Kaohsiung Exhibition Center (KEC). Now in its third year, the 3-day annual event brought together the upper, middle and downstream ecosystems of Taiwan's fisheries industry to form a business and networking platform that's propelling the industry forward.
The show was joined by the representatives from the nation's public, private and academic sectors with exhibits showcasing newly developed technologies that will play crucial roles in upgrading the industry to generate higher economic values.
One of the show's highlights was the "Taiwan Eye" fishery monitoring and observation system for fisheries management. AI is utilized to enable easy fishery identification and recording on boats out on the ocean, and the data can be uploaded to the server on land in real time.
With the Taiwanese fisheries industry playing a significant role in the international market, the show attracted over 5,000 professionals and international buyers from countries including Malaysia, China, Japan, Vietnam and Indonesia.
On the sideline of the show, the 2017 Fishery Industry One-on-One Procurement Meetings was joined by heavyweight buyers from 14 countries including Mexico, Argentina, Romania, and Japan to discuss US$30 million worth in deals with Taiwanese suppliers.
