Held every two years and hosted by the Queensland Seafood Marketers Association, the Queensland Seafood Industry Awards showcase the Queensland seafood industry; its value to the national economy, its professionalism, and its commitment to supplying some of the finest seafood in the world to local, national and international markets.
It does this through recognising and celebrating the positive contributions of individuals, partnerships, businesses and organisations towards a sustainable and profitable Australian seafood industry.
As is the case in previous years, State Award winners will go on to the National Seafood Industry Awards presented this year in Melbourne at the 2019 Seafood Directions Conference.
The next Queensland Seafood Industry Awards will be held in Brisbane on July 17, 2020. Registration and entry information will be published here closer to the event. Sign-up for our eNewsletter below to not miss important awards updates.
It was time to shine again at the Gala Dinner following the 2018 National Symposium on Seafood Marketing. The awards ceremony, attended by over 160 guests was opened by the Honourable Mark Furner, Minister for Agricultural Industry Development and Fisheries who congratulated all winners and finalists of the 2018 Queensland Seafood Industry Awards and highlighted that:
“these awards recognise the hard work of our local seafood businesses and the great product that they provide for Queenslanders”
“it is vital that Queensland’s seafood industry remains viable into the future and these awards demonstrate our produce is world-class.”
Congratulations to all 2018 Award Winners and Finalists and “Good Luck” to all our winners going forward to the National Seafood Industry Awards!
