"fish international" is the only trade fair for fish and seafood in Germany. It serves as a platform for traders and caterers where they can gain information and ideas. This year a stand was organized on which various research institutes presented their work. In cooperation with our colleagues from the Institute of Sea Fisheries, we informed about our activities at the Thünen Institute and presented especially our fishing technology department and the webpage "Fischbestände Online” (“fish stocks online”, in German). "Fish stocks online" gives information on the state of fish stocks, which are relevant for the German retail market.
