Seafish Wales is our delivery platform for projects that benefit the Welsh seafood industry. Our work in Wales will be defined by a Welsh Regional Strategy that will be aligned to the Seafish Corporate Plan and developed in consultation with key stakeholders through the Seafish Wales Advisory Committee (SWAC). The delivery of the Welsh strategy will be coordinated by Seafish Wales and may involve Seafish staff from the core workstreams as necessary.
In addition to delivering the Wales strategy, Seafish Wales will be a conduit between the core Seafish workstreams and the Wales seafood industry, facilitating one-to-one or group meetings/workshops/seminars as appropriate.
To ensure that the Seafish Wales strategy is aligned to the Wales Marine and Fisheries Strategic Action Plan, the Marine Transition Programme, and ‘Towards Sustainable Growth: an Action Plan for the Food and Drink Industry’, the Welsh Government will be represented on SWAC and will have input into to the decision-making process through that committee and through regular bilateral meetings with Seafish Wales. Seafish Wales will be partly funded by Welsh Government.
