Project description

The primary aim of AQUAGRIS is to co-ordinate the promotion of environmental sustainability in the farming, fisheries and aquaculture (FFA) industries. Effective management of lower input systems, and more efficient waste control will be especially addressed. in the context of the Environmental Technologies Action plan (ETAP). In this project, "farming" refers to the breeding and raising of terrestrial animals and cultivation of plants, "fisheries" refers to the industrial capture of wild aquatic species and "aquaculture" refers to the commercial culture of aquatic animals and plants. There are many similarities between these sectors. which provides an opportunity for the cross-over of knowledge and information from related topics. This will enhance the overall objectives of this Co-ordination Action.
