Background

Globally, aquaculture has been the fastest growing food production sector over the past two decades. In contrast to the world trend, production in the EU – and especially the Baltic Sea region – has stagnated or even declined slightly during the 2000s. On the other hand, a rapid increase in aquaculture production has been seen in Norway. The great potential of aquaculture for feeding the growing human population in an era of declining wild stocks (the "Blue Revolution") is widely acknowledged, but new production must be built on sustainable practices and technologies.

The Conference on Competitive and Sustainable Aquaculture in Northern Europe is part of the Finnish Presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers (NCM) in 2011. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for authorities, aquaculture industry, researchers and other stakeholders for discussing the opportunities and challenges for aquaculture in Northern Europe. Moreover, the conference has the further aim of implementing the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region and its flagship project on aquaculture.

The Conference is organised by the Finnish Game and Fisheries Research Institute and the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry and financed by the NCM. A separate Workshop on Recirculating Aquaculture Systems, also financed by the NCM and organised by the Danish Technical University (DTU), is linked to the conference.
