Aquaculture is making an increasing contribution to global fish and shellfish production and a growing and visible industry in many ICES countries.

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Aquaculture Steering Group (ASG) is responsible for guiding and supporting expert groups that are working on science and advisory topics contributing to the sustainable development of aquaculture.

Topics covered include:

  • evaluating the social and economic consequences of aquaculture operations
  • types, transmission and prevalence of diseases affecting cultured species and actions that can be taken to address them
  • environmental impacts of aquaculture, approaches to monitor and mitigate them and methods of aquaculture risk assessment
  • carrying capacity and relative efficiencies of alternate aquaculture systems
  • genetics of cultured species
  • projecting the future development of aquaculture and its implications for the food system and food security    ​
