Coordinator of the EU Mission CSA "Restore our Oceans and Waters" in the Baltic and North Sea Region - Visit Blue Mission BANOS


Aquaspace (2015-2018) was a research project aiming to understand spatial and socio-economic constraints on the expansion of aquaculture, and to test tools to help overcome these constraints. Its full title was ‘Ecosystem Approach to making Space for Aquaculture’. It had 22 partners and 17 Case Studies in Europe, China, North America, Australia and New Zealand.

AquaSpace aims to provide increased space for aquaculture production by identifying and attempting to overcome key constraints limiting the industry’s development using an ecosystem approach leading to a sustainable increase in EU aquaculture, while maintaining environmental quality.

The overall impact of the project will be to enable the aquaculture sector to grow sustainably and to effectively negotiate for space using Marine Spatial Planning.
