In the coming years, we will see changes in how seafood is acquired, processed, and provided to the market.  These changes will be the result of new fisheries management policies (including a growth in aquaculture), alteration of consumer preferences, and a re-shuffling of the world economy. This paper will examine some of these changes, the challenges they hold for seafood processors, and how these challenges might be dealt with.
