Spanish authorities, producer organisations and research institutes are organising open door visits and conferences across Spain today to celebrate the annual "Día de la Acuicultura". This year, the European Commission joined in the celebrations, supporting the "Di sí a la acuicultura sostenible" ("Say yes to sustainable aquaculture") competition launched by the Observatorio Español de Acuicultura from Fundación Biodiversidad (Mapama).
Next week aquaculture will be under the spotlights in Spain, in the framework of the Día de la Acuicultura celebrated every 30 November. This year is special as the Ministerio de Agricultura y Pesca, Alimentación y Medio Ambiente (MAPAMA) launched last September the campaign "Di sí a la acuicultura sostenible".
