Workshop on Market Demand & Supply for Scup in RI
October 3, 2017 @ 12:30 pm - 3:30 pm
This workshop will share findings related to a recent Rhode Island Sea Grant-funded project to better understand markets for scup in the region with a focus on where it goes once landed and also the ethnic market potential through surveys in Providence.
- Understand why and how scup currently moves through the market in RI.
- Recognize that market demand is not currently being met.
- Collectively identify places in the supply chain where scup can be redirected to local markets and what may need to be accomplished to make those changes.
Who can attend:
The workshop is open to folks who have been involved in the effort, as well as other state seafood businesses and experts across fishing and processing, management agencies, and the science community.
We hope for a rich discussion to help generate scenarios and recommendations for moving forward with the results. Ideas may include ways to fill market gaps, provide better access to local seafood for ethnic communities, and allow more local distribution of underutilized species.
