The aquaculture industry is an important contributor to the economic well-being of the Atlantic Area, particularly in rural peripheral areas. However, aquaculture in Europe must be developed in line with stringent EU rules which generate competition from other world regions, particularly Asia and Latin America. The EU aquaculture sector has remained stagnant for the past decade, in stark contrast to global growth of more than 6% per year in the same period. In order to reach its potential, the aquaculture industry must become more environmentally sustainable and address legislative actions.

SEAFARE strengthened links between researchers and industry, and influenced policy development at regional and national levels. It delivered innovative solutions for coastal zone management and the sustainable management of economic activity.
