Sustainability and transparency in the new blue economy With a growing world population, annual supply needed from the aquaculture sector must further surpass that from capture fisheries, reaching 62% in 2030, to maintain current consumption levels per capita. This presents tremendous challenges to the sector, to policy makers and to the aquaculture community at large. Improving perceptions of the sector will be instrumental if the goal is to be achieved.

The meeting is organized in collaboration with the Marine Resources Unit, DG Research and Innovation, European Commission and the Norwegian EU delegation.
