Round table discussion: Sustainable aquatic food systems

Last changed: 06 November 2023

Within the framework of the project “Sustainable Agri-Food Systems Intelligence – Science-Policy Interface” (SASi–SPi) , the team on aquatic food systems is currently preparing a scoping report to the European Commission. We invite you to join a round table discussion about sustainable aquatic food systems on 15 November.

“Aquatic Food” comprises of fish, invertebrates, aquatic plants, algae and blue green algae, aquatic mammals captured or cultured in freshwater, brackish water or marine ecosystems for food or feed. The scoping report based on scientific evidence will aim to frame the overall question of the sustainable transformation to aquatic food system, particularly by addressing:

1) the importance of aquatic food systems,

2) current issues of aquatic food systems, and

3) the path towards sustainable aquatic food systems.

To facilitate the exchange of views, we are here inviting a selected group of diverse specialists from government organizations, academia, industry, NGOs and further stakeholders internationally to participate in an online round table, on 15 November 2023 at 9–11 am CET.


The team on aquatic food systems within SASi-SPi would like to invite you to this specialist round table, and hope that you will be able to join!

Date: 15 November
Time: 9-11 am CET

During the round table we will address questions such as:

Why is it critical that  today’s aquatic food systems should transition into a sustainable system?

Which are the issues (or divergent views) regarding transitioning to sustainable aquatic food systems?

What are the relevant policy options and Who are the relevant stakeholders?

How do we envisage the path(s) for this transitioning to sustainable aquatic food systems?

As base for the discussion, we will send the draft of the scoping study by end of October 2023.

Register for the round table discussion before 10 November
