|Description:||95th EAAE Seminar: The economics of aquaculture with respect to fisheries|
|Location:||Civitavecchia (Rome), Italy|
|Subject:||One important focus of the seminar will be on the opportunities for and interactions between artificial fish rearing and restocking depleted natural populations at sea. Key questions are: - what are the economic benefits? - how can substitution be effective? - which are the trade-offs, or complementarities between aquaculture and fishery? Another focus will relate to aquacultural production and its externalities, both on land and at sea. Environmental considerations provide the necessary framework and relevant constraints. Key questions are: - what is the role of environmental conditions on fish production? - how to evaluate and internalise externalities, both at sea and on land? - what is the impact of multifunctional activities? A further issue will relate to market problems, such as competition, food security, hygiene, traceability and so on. Key questions are: - What degree of substitution is there in expenditure on proteins between fish, beef lamb, pork, dairy products and eggs? - to what extent the reared fish substitutes for marine catches? - what can be the contribution of reared havelings to marine supply of fishes? - how effective are traceability procedures?
