"Dear Colleagues,
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to the Second International Congress on Seafood Technology to be held May 10 - 13, 2010 in Anchorage, Alaska, United States of America, reports www.megafishnet.com with reference to Second International Congress on Seafood Technology.
Building on the success of the First Congress in 2008, the 2010 Congress will address state-of-the-art information and innovation regarding handling, processing, preservation, storage and transportation of seafood. World experts will present on key issues addressing the Seafood Industry such as products and health, safety and quality, integrated traceability, novel products and technologies, education, research and innovations, etc.

The high level panel of guest speakers and the organization of the Conference around key themes will hopefully enable you to capture the breakthrough advances of the last decades and envision the broad opportunities and possibilities that exist for more value-added products, longer shelf life, and more secure distribution of seafood. These presentations will be later structured into topics of current and vital interest in seafood technology and compiled as chapters in a book. Contacts are well advanced with a worldwide known publishing company.
In addition, the most recent research results will be presented in concurrent  sessions, and in poster sessions during the Congress. We are also inviting the seafood and related industries to showcase their products and services by participating in the Expo. This will be an excellent opportunity to interact, network, and exchange information, ideas and business opportunities because this Congress will bring together not only scientists, technologists, seafood processors, but also importers and exporters of seafood, business developers, government administrators responsible for policy development, NGOs and other interested parties from around the Globe.

 We believe it is most opportune to hold a seafood congress in Alaska. The state has been the shining example of sustainable policies, practices, and science-based decision-making for decades and has a long experience and leadership in seafood processing and exporting, clean technologies, value addition, research, and teaching.

We hope you will be able to join us and it will be our pleasure to welcome you to the 2nd International Congress on Seafood Technology. See you in Anchorage on May 10 - 13, 2010!"
