Synopsis of fisheries & aquaculture research projects in the 6th Framework Programme

Funded under: FP7-KBBE


The development and successful implementation of the Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) is highly dependent on research and objective advice provided by scientific institutions. In the 2002 reform of the CFP and more recently in the Blue Book adopted in 2007, the Commission has emphasised the crucial role of research and scientific advice for improving decision-making in EU fisheries management and related issues.
The new orientation of the CFP includes also a strategy for the sustainable development of European aquaculture (under revision during 2008) which although it is a self-sustainable industry that demonstrates a high potential for innovation and technology development, needs clearly scientific support to aquaculture-related policy challenges within the CFP, such as health, environmental issues, product quality and safety, methods for regulatory framework. All these requirements define an important area of Research for the European Union's Policy.
