About the product

This Technical Report deals with marine aquaculture and in particular intensive fish farming, which has shown a large expansion in most of the Mediterranean countries over the last 10 years. This rapid increase has caused conflicts with other activities in the coastal zone and raised significant public concern over environmental issues. Mediterranean mariculture should and could be sustainable with aquaculture practices that are environmentally not degrading, technically appropriate, economically viable and socially acceptable.
