Project description

Aquaculture has evolved from an artisanal farming sector to a technology-based bio-industry. In order to reconcile mutual Asian-European interests in production & consumption, a dialogue on a common research strategy serving sustainable, safe and healthy aquaculture production is essential.

The ASEM Aquaculture Platform, established in 2003, will develop valuable partnerships, using the driver of consumer needs and expectations to improve product processes, quality and value in both markets.
