Public hearing – Measures to improve sustainable aquaculture in the EU

The objective of this hearing is to listen to different stakeholders about the current challenges facing the aquaculture sector, notably linked to production. The speakers include fish farmers from varied realities, ranging from sea-based aquaculture in the Atlantic and Mediterranean to the ponds of the Czech Republic. Other speakers include researchers and entrepreneurs involved in developing innovative practices, from Hungary, Belgium and Croatia.

The EP approved an own-initiative report entitled “Towards a sustainable and competitive European aquaculture sector” in 2018, in which it stressed the need to stimulate diversification and innovation in aquaculture. In the meantime, the European Commission is expected to publish new strategic guidelines for the development of aquaculture later in 2020.
