FEUFAR : the Future of European Fisheries and Aquaculture Research

15-09-2008

This document provides an overview of the EC FP 6 funded project FEUFAR – The Future of European Fisheries and Aquaculture research. The goal of the FEUFAR Project was to define the research required in the medium term, to permit exploitation and farming of aquatic resources set against the context of key challenges and risks for meeting sustainability requirements. The main output of the exercise is a document outlining key challenges, strategic options and the research needs of capture fisheries and aquaculture in Europe. The project aims to contribute to the development and subsequent implementation of a European Maritime Policy and to further strengthen the European marine research area through anticipation of research needs in the field of fisheries and aquaculture.
