The invisible factory farms: the rise of aquaculture in “green” Europe

  • Environment
  • Fishing industry

SUTHERLAND - The European Union pledged around 2.9 billion euro between 2001 and 2020 to support the development of aquaculture. Based on the Food and Agriculture Organisation's strong support for fish farming, European institutions plan to develop aquaculture in member states, in order to decrease imports of fish products, to produce food in a more sustainable way and to reduce overfishing and meat consumption.
