Aquaculture in Motion 2013 - FEAP

Aquaculture in Motion 2013 - FEAP | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it

FEAP organised the 2nd edition of 'Aquaculture in Motion',  Wednesday 6th of November in Le Méridien Hotel in Brussels. This year the event focussed on the ‘Strategic Guidelines for the Sustainable Development of European Aquaculture’ that were published by the European Commission in April 2013. These Guidelines aim to assist the EU Member States to define national targets while taking account of their circumstances, institutional arrangements and relative positions in terms of aquaculture activities. While the aims to promote aquaculture are intended to be achieved through a voluntary open process of coordination, it is also proposed, where appropriate, that common objectives be identified, alongside measurable indicators for progress.


In providing a focus on the need for quantified targets and relevant indicators, Aquaculture in Motion intends to stimulate the identification of Best Practice for the key performance indicators that need to be agreed as measures of progress and development. Moving European aquaculture forward with successful sustainable strategies was the target of this year’s Aquaculture in Motion.

8th Aquaculture Roundtable Series to focus on Asia’s Shrimp Industry and the Need for Change « Aquaculture Directory

8th Aquaculture Roundtable Series to focus on Asia’s Shrimp Industry and the Need for Change « Aquaculture Directory | Aquaculture Directory | Scoop.it
Asia is the leading supplier of farmed shrimp to global markets. However, its production has dropped since 2010. Today, growth of the shrimp aquaculture is moving at different speeds. This has not benefitted the entire value chain as gross margins remain thin due to low survival rates and disease outbreaks. The situation has since regressed, resulting in reduced productivity with massive increases in production cost. 

"Today the industry is being sustained by high prices which is not expected to continue. Living with diseases, inconsistent harvest volumes and crop losses may be the new normal, but what the industry needs now is a revolutionary change.
