About ICES Aquaculture Overviews

Aquaculture is a high-priority topic for ICES and our ​work on aquaculture is part of a wider portfolio of work that seeks to advance and share a scientific understanding of marine ecosystems and the services they provide—and to use this knowledge to generate state-of-the-art advice for meeting conservation, management, and sustainability goals.

The objectives of aquaculture overviews are to:

  1. Summarize regional and temporal information on aquaculture activities, practices, and production of the cultured taxa;
  2. Describe the relevant policy and legal foundation as well as management frameworks;
  3. consider the environmental and socio-economic interactions of aquaculture activities and practices;
  4. Provide insights on the interaction of environmental, economic, and social drivers;
  5. Consider future projections and emerging threats and opportunities.

ICES workshops are open participation. We encourage participants from public institutes, universities, governments, international organizations and conventions, public consultative bodies, industry organizations, and environmental NGOs, as well as interested individuals, to join and contribute with their expertise.
