For the past three years, the international Aquabest project to promote sustainable aquaculture has been seeking solutions for fish farming in the Baltic Sea region. The project’s results include developing fish farming technology, determining the location of new fish farms and influencing legislation that governs operations. The end results of the project have been summarised as brief recommendations, which it is hoped that the operators and official bodies in the sector will build on further in their own work. www.aquabestproject.eu

The starting point was the idea that as the problems of Baltic fish farming are shared, the solutions could be shared too. The Aquabest project was coordinated by the Finnish Game and Fisheries Research Institute.

New recommendations for the Archipelago Sea
Extraction of Baltic Sea fish recommended for fish feed. This would enable the recycling of marine nutrients and eliminate the need for fish feed imports. This is one of the recommendations jointly drawn up by the Finnish Game and Fisheries Research Institute and the Finnish Environment Institute for the promotion and coordination of fishing, fish farming and other methods of exploiting the marine environment and resources in the Archipelago Sea. The two institutes conducted a case study on the sustainable use of the Archipelago Sea under the EU-funded COEXIST project – Interaction in European coastal waters: A roadmap to sustainable integration of aquaculture and fisheries.
