This website exists to promote the exchange of information & ideas, to foster interaction, understanding and professional collaboration among individuals, organisations and governments, to disseminate knowledge about the inspection of fish, seafood and associated products and to promote advancement of the state of the art in fish inspection research and education.
Any professional association is as strong as its membership. If you want IAFI - and this website - to fully and properly represent the inspection community, then we need you to join and to contribute your expertise and experience to the development of the profession.
