Aquaculture production in the European Union

01-01-2018

Aquaculture production in the European Union remains relatively stagnant compared with the rising rates of farmed seafood production at world level. Over the past 20 years, the Commission has attempted to gear up EU production potential through the launch of various strategy and guideline papers, and the aquaculture advisory council (AAC) was established in 2016. This body is made up of representatives of the industry and other relevant stakeholder organisations and gives advice to the European institutions and the Member States.
