Developing sustainable aquaculture in the Atlantic
What are the challenges and opportunities in trans-Atlantic research collaboration and the development of a sustainable Atlantic aquaculture industry? Two H2020 projects AquaVitae and Astral will share experiences and best practices based on their research toward more sustainable aquaculture activities in the Belém Statement areas. Both projects will offer examples and opportunities of innovation, stakeholder participation, social awareness, and capacity building.
The event will bring together representatives from research institutions, industry as well as policymakers to respond to the challenges of the Mission Starfish 2030, EU Blue growth strategy and UN’s SDGs. As a third aspect of this side event, the AANChOR Joint Action: “Initiation toward a Brazilian Aquaculture Technology & Innovation Platform as a first step towards an All-Atlantic Aquaculture Platform” will be presented by EATiP – the European Aquaculture Technology & Innovation Platform. Using Brazil as a case study, but with application to all Belém partners, this JA seeks to scope the potential for self-sustaining Atlantic aquaculture multi stakeholder platform(s) in the development of a national / regional Strategic Research & Innovation agenda for sustainable industry development.
Strengthening food security across the Atlantic through low-trophic and circular aquaculture
ASTRAL focuses on integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (IMTA) farming, aiming to define, support, and promote this type of sustainable aquaculture production across the Atlantic area.
AquaVitae aims to increase aquaculture production in and around the Atlantic Ocean by developing new species, processes and products, focusing on low trophic species.
EATiP is an international non-profit association dedicated to developing, supporting and
