CCB member organisations has worked together to create a statement on what the potential and limits to growth the aquaculture sector has in our region. Proper risk management and not jeopardizing existing goals in legislation such as CFP, MSFD and HELCOMs BSAP are important elements. To keep pushing for new technique and feeds must be a regional ambition. CCB does not favor placing open cage systems in the marine environment as this is connected with too many problems that can’t fully be controlled today. It’s important that national aquaculture strategies adhere to common goals and principles shared by all countries in the Baltic Region.
