  • Programme of research and technological development - 1991-94 : Third framework programme : Synopsis of selected projects in the field of fisheries and aquaculture


This publication focuses upon the selected fisheries and aquaculture projects of the European Union's agricultural and agro-industry including fisheries programme of research and technological development, which was adopted in April 1990 as part of the Community's third framework programme. This specific programme concerns all of agriculture, horticulture, forestry, fisheries, aquaculture and related food and non-food industries. The ultimate objective of the programme is not only to help primary production to adapt and respond to changing Community policies, but also to link the primary production sector with the agro-industrial processing sector by matching the production of land and water-based biological resources and their use by consumers and industry through pre-competitive research, technological development and demonstration. The programme is organized into four distinct scientific and technical areas: primary production in agriculture, horticulture, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture; inputs to agriculture, horticulture, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture; processing of biological raw materials from agriculture, horticulture, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture; end-use and products.
