European Aquaculture Training for improving Seafood Husbandry

Project description

Fishing for sustainable aquaculture

Farming finfish, shellfish and aquatic plants is one of the world's fastest growing food sectors. In Europe, aquaculture accounts for about 20 % of fish production and directly employs some 70 000 people. The EU-funded EATFISH project will address current and future challenges related to competition in the market, sustainability, disease in aquaculture systems and governance. Backed by a multidisciplinary consortium composed of universities, research institutes and private sector partners, the project will train researchers in socio-economic and governance aspects of aquaculture. Specifically, it will focus on the optimisation of the resource economy in European aquaculture so that it contributes to a circular bioeconomy. Moreover, it will ensure animal health and welfare and develop novel aquaculture products targeted at specific market segments.
