Falklands squid has world recognition Falklands squid has world recognition

A conference on “Thirty years of market development of Falklands' seafood”, by Loligo Seafood SL Commercial Director, Jean Baptiste Chassin is scheduled for next Tuesday, 21st February, at the Chamber of Commerce in Stanley.

 The conference is considered a unique opportunity for Fisheries Managers, Policy Makers, Administrators and anyone involved or interested in our seafood industry to learn more at firsthand about this fundamental area of the seafood business from someone who has been at the forefront of the commercialization of Falklands' products for thirty years.

The presentation will be centered on squid dorytheusisgahi but will also encompass references to the other species of the Falklands' fishery.

Jean Baptiste is a graduate in Business Administration from the French Business School HEC, and a Doctor in Econometrics from Paris University. He has been a seafood Sales and Marketing Executive since 1986 and has worked with Falkland products, particularly squid, from the commencement of the fishery.

Loligo Seafood SL is the sales and marketing joint venture company of Fortuna Limited.

    Think - more nonsense from you. Typical Argentine - in spite of your long shoreline I am told by my sympathetic Argentine friends that consumption of seafood is extraordinarily low in your benighted nation. No wonder most of you are brain dead!

    Do any of the Falklanders care what you think or post..I doubt it. You are totally powerless to do anything but make snide comments and remarks which affect them not a whit.

    The same with your political class. They would be better employed in taking your would-be colonial country into the 21st century and improving the life of it's population.

    When we have popped our clogs, no doubt nothing will have changed. The same old whining will be heard from “son-of-think” ad infinitum.

    Spend more of your time murdering defenceless will make you happier.

    Maybe, just maybe it was a lazy Mercopress insert from the first page of a google image search. I would have thought that if either Loligo, Fortuna or the Islands C of C had issue the image they would have used something like this...
