Guide for the Sustainable Development of Mediterranean Aquaculture. Interaction between Aquaculture and the Environment

Executive Summary: Aquaculture is the farming of aquatic organisms including fish, molluscs, crustaceans and aquatic plants. Farming implies some sort of intervention in the rearing process to enhance production, such as regular stocking, feeding, protection from predators, etc. Farming also implies individual or corporate ownership of the stock being cultivated.

Most of the potential environmental impacts of aquaculture can be managed and minimised through the understanding of the processes, responsible management and the effective sitting of farms. Therefore, sustainable management guidelines are essential tools for policy makers, administrators, aquaculture producers and other stakeholders. This guide is devoted to the interaction between aquaculture practices and the environment.
