TAPAS (a four-year EU Horizon 2020 research project) aims to promote and consolidate the environmental sustainability of the European aquaculture in both marine and freshwater environments. This project will develop environmental models, tools, approaches and decision frameworks to support EU Member States in establishing a coherent and efficient regulatory framework, implementing the Strategic Guidelines for the sustainable development of European aquaculture and delivering a technology and decision framework for sustainable growth.
The outcomes will help decrease the licensing time for new and existing developments, enhance the public image of aquaculture and to gain a better understanding of the sustainability of aquaculture in the EU. The TAPAS consortium is made up of 15 European partners.
Duration: March 2016 – February 2020
