"Aquaculture in 2030 will produce nutritious food with less environmental footprints than any other food production for humans."
Identified KEY GOALS:
- To establish fundamental scientific knowledge on the assimilation capacity of biogenic wastes from aquaculture to determine acceptable emission rates for benthic and pelagic ecosystems (Biogenic waste assimilation in ecosystems).
- To establish technology to minimise emission of biogenic matter from aquaculture and to minimize the potential environmental influence of the actual emissions by means of
environmental management and integrated multi-trophic aquaculture (Technology
to minimise biogenic influence).
- To understand the fate and cumulative effects of synthetic agents used in aquaculture
and minimizing their impact on the environment (Fate of synthetic agents in ecosystem).
- To establish more fundamental knowledge to understand the interactions between farmed and wild stocks, including wildlife (Interactions of farmed and wild stocks).
- To develop or adapt tools and measures in support of appropriate environmental governance for aquaculture (Tools for environmental governance)
