OrAqua – European Organic Aquaculture – Science based recommendations for further development of the EU regulatory framework and to underpin future growth in the sector
The overall vision of the OrAqua project is the economic growth of the organic aquaculture sector in Europe, supported by science based regulations in line with the organic principles and consumer confidence.
OrAqua will suggest improvements for the current EU regulatory framework for organic aquaculture based on:
- a review of the relevant available scientific knowledge,
- a review of organic aquaculture production and economics, as well as
- consumer perceptions of organic aquaculture. The project will focus on aquaculture production of relevant European species of finfish, molluscs, crustaceans and seaweed.
Nofima AS (Norway) is coordinator and FEAP is one of the partners
