Aquaculture Common Issues Group

The Aquaculture Common Issues Group, facilitated by Seafish, aims to discuss and inform positions on some of the sector's most important issues.

The group is comprised of culturists, the main producer associations, food and fish feed processors, retailers, environmental NGOs, Crown Estates, Government Departments and regional development organisations, who are concerned with, or affected by, the many issues facing the UK finfish and shellfish aquaculture industry.

The group provides a forum for the discussion of ethical, environmental and economic challenges to the aquaculture industry, during which the aim is to reach an understanding on these issues, particularly with regard to responsible and sustainable seafood cultivation. The Terms of Reference (ToR) for the group can be found here
