Total Croatia News

Aquaculture is a sustainable way of meeting growing demands for fish products.

Aquaculture Europe 2017 Conference is held in Dubrovnik from October 18-20, 2017, where important issues are discussed concerning fishing industry and aquaculture with emphasis on cooperation between operators.

Production and exports in aquaculture have been steadily rising, especially since 2013, and the aquaculture is expected to continue to grow due to the high demand for fishery products and limited fishery resources, reports on October 18, 2017.

Seeing that many fisheries are either depleted or fully exploited, more rigorous fishing restrictions have been introduced thus increasing the fishing effort. Croatian aquaculture is an important production sector of domestic industry, annually producing about 17,000 tons of products. “Aquaculture is the only answer to the growing demands”, said Vice-President of Croatian Chamber of Economy Ivan Škoric at the opening of Aquaculture Europe 2017 in Dubrovnik. The conference, the largest of its kind in Europe, has gathered more than 1,300 participants from 62 countries. “Due to overfishing, all kinds of overfishing limitations in the EU are in effect.

Aquaculture offers solutions for long-term sustainability and long-term stability of fisheries. We consider aquaculture to be a strategic branch which can aid the development of the fishing industry, “said Minister of Agriculture Tomislav Tolušic.
