Adelaide to host second Circular Advantage Workshop in August

The Fisheries Research and Development Corporation (FRDC) is hosting its second Circular Advantage Workshop aimed at helping redefine the seafood sector and maximising the use of seafoods.

The workshops explore ways to convert what was once seen as ‘waste’ into valuable products and resources that are generating profit for fishing and aquaculture stakeholders across the globe.

The workshops are a collaboration between FRDC, KPMG and the Regional Circularity Cooperative which will team up with individuals and organisations to address challenges within the fisheries value chain and realise new circular opportunities.

This is the second Circular Advantage workshop and follows on from a similar event in February, where FRDC joined forces with Bega Regional Circularity to explore different circular economy opportunities with seafood stakeholders. The workshop learned how circular economy practices are creating value, reducing waste, extending equipment life, and building quadruple bottom line capacity.

The next 2.5-day workshop will take place in Adelaide with plans to host representatives from the seafood sector, including fisheries and aquaculture supply chain businesses and suppliers as priority participants. Government, industry associations, research institutes, and others motivated to transition towards a circular economy will also be welcomed based on capacity.
