A Papua New Guinea booth at fisheries and seafood exposition in China has drawn good crowds reports Pacnews.
The National Fisheries Authority hired a local chef to prepare Chinese dishes using PNG lobsters, prawns, mussels, crabs and fish to serve visitors at the booth, a tactic which drew many visitors to the booth.
PNG seafood products on display included dry shark fin, dry trochus shells, dried beche-de-mer samples, live lobster and coral trout, frozen barramundi fillets, lobster tails, reef fish fillets, whole mud and coconut crabs, prawns, whole tuna and mussels.
The China fisheries and seafood exposition is the largest of its kind in Asia.
NFA provincial support and industry development group executive manager Welete Wararu said the China market is the target market for PNG’s beche-de-mer.
