A short video on aquaculture in Europe - and the opportunities for further development. As aquaculture is growing rapidly in the rest of the world, being the quickest growing food producing sector, the cultivation of fish, shellfish and algae has been on a 'stand-still' in Europe during the last decade or more. The European Commission has launched a revision of the common aquaculture strategy (April 8. 2009). It surely is a nice vision, but a bit toothless with its lack of operationality and no accompanying resources to give the needed power to fulfill the strategy.
