INFOSAMAK took part in the first meeting of the Aquaculture Task Force (ATF) organized by GFCM, in order to develop a “Strategy for the sustainable development of Mediterranean and Black Sea Aquaculture”. The GFCM strategy on aquaculture aims to be an instrument for GFCM members to improve cooperation in the region and to ensure a coordinated and responsible aquaculture development within a Blue Growth perspective.

In this context, the first ATF meeting engaged members in the consultative process. Based on the background documents and discussions, the ATF provided advice on the key challenges and strategic scope for aquaculture progress in the region. The outcomes of the first ATF meeting will be presented at the 40th GFCM Session.
