FAO - General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean

Rome, Italy

The SHoCMed project (Developing site selection and carrying capacity for Mediterranean aquaculture within aquaculture appropriate areas) aims at producing criteria for enhancing the integration of aquaculture in ICZM by improving site selection and holding capacity benchmarks and reference points. This will also provide a base for harmonisation of standards, and as appropriate aquaculture policy and legal frameworks, across the Mediterranean ensuring equal terms of competition and minimal environmental damage. The project is funded with the contribution of European Commission (EC) DG Mare.
