The NSW Department of Primary Industries (DPI) have signed as gold sponsor for the 2013 Sydney Fish Market Seafood Excellence Awards.

This marks the second time that that Department has endorsed the event which aims to celebrate the many accomplishments of the NSW seafood industry.

Executive director of Fisheries NSW, Dr Geoff Allan said the department was extremely proud to support the event and honour the achievements of the industry.

“The NSW Department of Primary Industries is committed to supporting the hard working men and women who work tirelessly to ensure Australians can enjoy fresh seafood and are committed to building a sustainable future for the industry,” said Allan.

“We are very proud to once again collaborate with Sydney Fish Market to support this event. High quality seafood is essential to a healthy diet and lifestyle for most Australians. Taking time to recognise the ‘best of the best’ and honouring industry leaders for such achievements as best environmental practice is important.”

Bryan Skepper, Sydney Fish Market’s General Manager is delighted that the NSW’s Department of Primary Industries will be the gold sponsor at the awards.

“We greatly appreciate the NSW Department of Primary Industries’ Gold Sponsorship as well as that of many other supportive sponsors. It’s clear that sponsors share our vision for a sustainable fishing industry and are committed to working with us to achieve this,” said Skepper.

“Industry sponsorship is integral to the success of the Seafood Excellence Awards. Without the generous support of the department and all contributing sponsors, industry excellence would go unnoticed.”
