Fanny Bay Oysters is among 11 B.C. seafood companies attending an international seafood show this week in Boston — the largest seafood trade exposition in North America.

Gold River Seafood is also attending.

The B.C. contingent includes the B.C. Seafood Alliance, the provincial agrifoods sector manager, a market development specialist, and government trade and investment representatives, all co-operating to showcase B.C. products and services available to international buyers and markets.

Targetting the agrifoods and seafood sectors, a primary goal is to introduce and reintroduce B.C. as a source for fresh, diverse and high-quality seafood.

Last year, nearly 20,000 suppliers, media and seafood-industry professionals from 100 countries attended the International Boston Seafood Show to discover new products and grow their businesses.
