Joint statement on the future role of freshwater aquaculture

Following the conference entitled "Common Fisheries Policy: which future for aquaculture?", which took place in Salzburg last week, ministers at the Agriculture and Fisheries Council were briefed by the Commission. As a follow-up of the event, 21 member states signed a joint statement on the future role of freshwater aquaculture in the CFP.
The statement underlines the importance of aquaculture in the EU, as it can provide long-term sustainability in ecologic, economic and social terms, as well as contribute to  increase food supplies and the recovery of fish stocks. It also recalls that aquaculture plays a vital role for the economy, employment and the quality of life in rural areas, and suggests that this sector should consequently be promoted in particular through the EMFF .
