Since the publication in 2013 of the Strategic Guidelines on the sustainable development of European aquaculture, the European Commission has been working closely with Member States to address the obstacles hindering the development of the sector, primarily at the national level. As highlighted in the European Committee of the Regions' Opinion on "The Future of European Aquaculture", however, Regions have a key role to play in creating the right conditions for the development of EU aquaculture, through efficient licencing procedures, spatial planning, promotion of local products and other initiatives.

The meeting is open to all Member States representatives, Regional Authorities and other stakeholders.
