2024 DATES COMING SOON!  •  Lumen Field Event Center  •  Seattle, WA

Call for Speakers


Our education program offers sessions on various topics relevant to all in the commercial fishing industry. These sessions, curated by the Pacific Marine Expo content team alongside the National Fisherman and WorkBoat editorial teams, are based on relevant industry trends, challenges, opportunities, and current events. 

This year’s edition of PME will actively cultivate a sense of community across the entire commercial fishing landscape by showcasing the people, topics and issues that define what it means for fishermen to do business. How are changing regulations impacting that reality? What tools and innovations are making a difference in the day-to-day lives of fishermen? These questions and plenty more will be answered and explored on the stage at PME and we want you to be part of those conversations.   

**New this year! We are expanding content to include workboat-related programming relative to the commercial fishing industry. Examples are content about shipyards, ports,  supply chain and blue technology.

Traditional Expo topics can include but are not limited to: 

  • boat building
  • climate change impacting fishing seasons
  • fishing gear
  • marketing and selling
  • new technology
  • next generation fishermen
  • propulsion & power
  • regional issues
  • regulations
  • safety/survival
  • workforce development

Call for Speakers is now closed.
