Aquabest – developing the best aquaculture practices for the Baltic Sea Region

Aquaculture has been the fastest growing food production sector globally during the last two decades. In opposite to the global and European trend, the production in the EU and especially in the Baltic Sea area has stagnated. It is widely accepted that aquaculture has great potential to feed growing human population in the era of declining wild stocks, but new production has to be built on sustainable practices and technologies. Aquabest project strives to demonstrate that the Baltic Sea region aquaculture has the potential to become a sustainable and responsible food production system, accepted by all stakeholders.

“Good progress has been made on all work packages,” says coordinator Jouni Vielma contentedly, after the first meeting of Aquabest partners. The meeting was held between 18 and 20 April in Hirtshals, Denmark, hosted by DTU Aqua.
