Seafare small


SEAFARE is designed to provide small-to-medium enterprises and public authorities with tools for sustainable and environmentally friendly aquaculture

TITLE: Sustainable and environmentally friendly aquaculture for the Atlantic region of Europe
PROGRAMME: Atlantic Area Transnational Programme
TOTAL BUDGET: €3,179,473
DURATION: January 2010 – December 2012
COORDINATOR: Bangor University, United Kingdom
CONSORTIUM: 5 partners and 9 associated partners from 5 countries from the Atlantic Region

The aquaculture industry is an important contributor to the economic well-being of the Atlantic Area, particularly in rural peripheral areas. However, aquaculture in Europe must be developed in line with stringent EU rules which generate competition from other world regions, particularly Asia and Latin America. The EU aquaculture sector has remained stagnant for the past decade, in stark contrast to global growth of more than 6% per year in the same period. In order to reach its potential, the aquaculture industry must become more environmentally sustainable and address legislative actions.

SEAFARE will strengthen links between researchers and industry, and influence policy development at regional and national levels. It will deliver innovative solutions for coastal zone management and the sustainable management of economic activity.
