이번 행사는 정 의원이 올해 세 번째 연 행사로 이날 행사에는 정우택 국회부의장, 최형두 국민의힘 경남도당위원장 등 국회의원 20여 명을 비롯한 내외 귀빈 1,000여 명이 참석해 대성황을 이뤘다.
특히 이번 행사는 국내외적으로 많은 어려움을 겪고 있는 어업인들에게 용기를 북돋고 통영과 고성을 비롯한 국내 수산물의 안전성과 우수성을 국민들께 홍보한다는 취지에서 시작부터 많은 관심과 이목이 집중됐다.
행사를 주최한 정점식 의원은 “후쿠시마 원전 영향으로 수산물 소비가 잠시 위축되었다가 정치권 및 수산인 단체들이 힘을 모아 대국민 홍보를 적극적으로 펼쳐 온 끝에 다시 회복세를 보이고 있어 매우 뜻깊게 생각한다”면서 “남해안의 대표 겨울철 수산물인 굴, 멍게, 우럭 등은 미국식품의약국(FDA)으로부터 철저하게 검증받은 만큼 국민들께서는 안심하고 드시게 되는 인식 전환의 계기가 되길 바란다”고 강조했다. 또 “우리나라 수산업의 발전과 어민 모두의 소득증대 향상을 위해 앞으로도 많은 노력을 기울이겠다”고 밝혔다.

Rep. Jeong Jeong-sik, ‘Promoting the safety and excellence of domestic marine products’
‘Winter Seafood National Assembly Tasting and Special Sales Exhibition’
The ‘Winter Fishery National Assembly Tasting and Special Sale Exhibition’, hosted by Rep. Jeong Jeong-sik, sponsored by five fisheries cooperatives, including the Oyster and Sea Squirt Fishery Cooperatives and the Fisheries Cooperatives, and the Ministry of Oceans and Fisheries and the National Federation of Fisheries Cooperatives, was held in the front yard of the Communication Center on the 1st.
This event was Rep. Jeong's third event this year, and it was a great success with the attendance of more than 1,000 domestic and foreign guests, including 20 National Assembly members, including National Assembly Vice Speaker Jeong Woo-taek and People Power Party Gyeongnam Provincial Party Chairman Choi Hyeong-du.
In particular, this event attracted a lot of interest and attention from the beginning with the purpose of encouraging the fishermen who are facing many difficulties at home and abroad and promoting the safety and excellence of domestic marine products, including those in Tongyeong and Goseong, to the public.
On this day, about 1,000 people's food prepared with representative marine products from the southern coast of Tongyeong and Goseong, such as fried oysters, fried rockfish, sea squirt rice balls, and various raw fish, were prepared, and various products were prepared for sale. Most of the prepared food and products were sold. It had a great publicity effect.
Rep. Jeong Jeong-sik, who hosted the event, said, “Consumption of seafood decreased for a while due to the impact of the Fukushima nuclear power plant, but it is showing signs of recovery again after political circles and fishermen groups came together to actively promote it to the public. I think it is very meaningful.” He emphasized, “I hope this will be an opportunity to change the perception of the public so that they can consume oysters, sea squirts, and rockfish, which are representative winter marine products, as they have been thoroughly verified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).” He also said, “We will continue to make great efforts to develop our country’s fishing industry and increase the income of all fishermen.”
