CCB statement on sustainable aquaculture

CCB has developed a joint paper on what NGOs think are relevant requirements on sustainable aquaculture in the Baltic Region.

The Baltic Sea cannot sustain more operations that add to nutrient enrichment. CCB belives that several key problems, well known from Norwegian examples, must be solved before any more small or large scale aquaculture can be given operational permits. Feed and alternative feeds, effects on wild stocks, eutrophication and nutrient loss, local impacts on bottoms are main issues that have or may have solutions but none are available for practical application today.
