Guidelines for the application of an ecosystem approach for development of sustainable aquaculture in ORs and OCTs




Given the potential for Blue Growth of the Outermost Regions (ORs) and Overseas Countries and Territories (OCTs), it is considered essential to address the issue of aquaculture as part of the European Blue Economy Strategy in the ORs and OTCs.

It is therefore necessary to establish an overview of the state of the art of aquaculture development in the ORs and OCTs through an analysis of environmental, technological, social and economical aspects describing the main bottlenecks encountered in each thematic area. This analysis synthesized in the guidelines aims at providing a set of recommendations, based on robust scientific information, to promote Sustainable Aquaculture practices and their development in the EU Overseas.
