The IAFI Peter Howgate Award is a tribute to Peter Howgate’s work and career, and a recognition of his immense and ongoing contribution to the field of fish technology and the people who work in it, both during his 35 years at the UK’s Torry Research Station, UK, and thereafter. The Award was set up by fish technology professionals around the world, with the help of the Seafood HACCP Discussion List community and was adopted by the International Association of Fish Inspectors (IAFI) in 2014.
The Peter Howgate Award is administered by Megapesca Lda. Portugal on behalf of the International Association of Fish Inspectors. We look forward to meeting the successful applicant in Iceland at WSC 2017.”
