Sustainable Fisheries Partnership Agreements (SFPAs) aim to create a partnership to promote sustainable fisheries, based on the best available scientific advice.

Aquaculture - opportunities for development

Video

As a sector, aquaculture now makes an essential contribution to nutrition globally. It is also a growth sector, since fishing, no matter how productive, cannot meet the demand for fish, molluscs, crustaceans and algae, due to the limited natural productivity of the aquatic environment. Despite this favourable context, European aquaculture is not benefiting from this global upsurge. Therefore, on the 8th of April 2009, the European Commission adopted a strategy aimed at identifying the problems faced by European aquaculture and at putting a framework in place to promote sustainable development in the sector.
