LIFE Muscles at the congress on the European Aquaculture Society

Two partners of the LIFE Muscles project were also present at the congress on the European Aquaculture Society, held in Rimini from 27 to 30 September: The Mediterranean Aquaculture Association And the University of Bologna.

The Bologna-based team presented the LIFE_Muscles project, making researchers and operators in the aquaculture sector from all over Europe aware of the problem of plastic nets used for mussel farming and spreading the importance of the goal of replacing polypropylene socks with biomaterial socks for the well-being of the entire marine ecosystem.

Climate change, depletion of natural resources, loss of biodiversity, food security, environmental pollution and waste are major sustainability challenges for the further expansion of European aquaculture and for the ambitions of the European Green Deal and the Farm to Fork strategy.
How aquaculture is addressing these challenges and the solutions put in place to develop a sustainable, responsible, productive and climate-neutral European aquaculture sector for key marine and freshwater fish species, i molluscs and algal species are the main themes of the event to which a representation of AMA, the Mediterranean Aquaculture Farmers Association, also contributed, with the dissemination of project themes to industry insiders.
