The purpose of the investment brochure is to help potential investors in preliminary decision-making, presenting the resources that are needed. The brochure is also for investors who have no previous experience in aquaculture. The report explains the basic terms used in this sector, the basic technical and technological description of African catfish and whiteleg shrimp cultivation.
Farming finfish, shellfish and aquatic plants is one of the world’s fastest growing food sectors, and we are frequent consumers of aquaculture products. But the products rarely come from our local market and we know little about them. This is especially true when it comes to crustaceans.
In the WP4 of the InnoAquaTech project, an activity is dedicated to design a business plan of a South-Baltic Aquaculture Network that will deliver the InnoAquaTech Service Offer to SMEs beyond the course of the project (July 2019).
AquaVIP, a follow-up to the InnoAquaTech project, will focus on boosting education with the aim of a better prepared labour force and business capacity in innovative aquaculture. AquaVIP will build on our experiences with capacity building in aquaculture competences and modern aquaculture technologies (e.g. aquaponics, microalgae cultivation and RAS) from projects such as InnoAquaTech and other national and European projects. The ultimate goal of the AquaVIP project is to create a virtual career and mobility center for the innovative aquaculture sector. The AquaVIP project will be featured on the SUBMARINER Aquaculture website.
Aquaculture is driven by innovation to meet one of the three main business goals, productivity, sustainability and profitability. Intensification requires upscaling production systems and developing new solutions for producing more to supply a growing market with healthy products. This requires new ideas, technologies and entrepreneurs to put them into place. APPLY & pitch your ideas!

The UNITED (multi-Use platforms and co-locatioN pilots boosting cost-effecTive, Eco-friendly and sustainable production in marine environments) project provides evidence by means of pilot demonstrators that the development of multi-use platforms or co-location of different activities in a marine and ocean space is a viable approach (economically, socially and environmentally) for European maritime industry and local ecosystems.
