What the SAFET Conference Is All About
The Seafood and Fisheries Emerging Technologies Conference (SAFET) brings together a global network of technology developers and implementers that are committed to addressing the biggest challenges in the seafood and fisheries world. Emerging technologies play a key role to address issues such as environmental sustainability, social responsibility, provenance, equity, and economic viability. We believe there is a growing need for a central convening force in the fisheries and seafood technology space, one which better connects technology providers with implementers, increases the flow of information between developers and stakeholders, enables adoption and scale, does these things actively, and one that is truly global in scope. SAFET’s mission is to realize the full potential of emerging technologies that ensure the sustainability and resilience of fisheries and the communities that depend on them, globally.
SAFET’s hallmark event is its Biennial Conference. Previous conferences have taken place in Honiara in 2014, Auckland in 2016, Bangkok in 2019 and virtually in 2020 and 2021. Participation and interest in SAFET among the fisheries and seafood community have increased steadily, with each event better attended than the previous. Most recently, the 2020/21 virtual conference increased the SAFET community from ~1,200 to over 2,000 global and engaged stakeholders and our most recent in-person conference had over 260 participants with 20 exhibitioners. In our next conference, we aim to increase our in-person and online participation.
However, the SAFET global platform is much more than the Biennial Conference – we are a growing community and a movement to help catalyze the uptake and scale of new and emerging technologies in seafood and fisheries.

Goals of the SAFET Conference
1. Provide a forum to review, explore, and discover the potential of emerging, and potentially disruptive, technologies to improve the conservation and management of our world's fisheries.
2. Connect tech service providers with implementers and practitioners in the seafood and fisheries space.
3. Advance the future adoption and scale of innovative emerging technologies in seafood and fisheries where appropriate.
