"European Aquaculture: the path for growth": EU conference takes place in La Coruña
The European Commission, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Environment of Spain and the Presidency of the Government of Galicia have co-hosted the EU-wide stakeholders Conference "European Aquaculture: the path for growth", in La Coruña.
After the event, Commissioner Damanaki commented: "Giving European aquaculture a lifeline and boost sustainable growth for the sector is what we need and participants inspired us in many ways on how to translate today's event into input for Strategic Aquaculture Guidelines to make this happen."
The debate in La Coruña is the finalisation of a wide consultation process launched in Salzburg. As a next step the European Commission will propose common objectives and targets for strategic guidelines on sustainable aquaculture that the Commission plans to adopt in February 2013.
