Scientific Opinion on ‘Food from the Oceans’

The High Level Group of the Commission's Scientific Advice Mechanism (SAM) has published a new independent scientific opinion ''Food from the Oceans". At the request of Karmenu Vella, Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, on behalf of the European Commission, the scientific advisers addressed the question "How can more food and biomass be obtained from the oceans in a way that does not deprive future generations of their benefits?". This publication follows the stakeholder meeting organised on 13 November 2017 which was attended by Kate Larkin from the EMB Secretariat. More information is available on the Commission website.
