FORWARD is part of the results of the ERA-CHAIR ECOAQUA project, and more specifically to the project Guidelines on sustainable aquaculture in ORs and other overseas territories (OCTs).

Given the relevance of ORs and OCTs in the European maritime policy context, with their intrinsic huge marine biodiversity and its potential for Blue Growth, the ECOAQUA project addressed the issue of aquaculture as part of the European Blue Economy Strategy and Maritime Spatial Planning Policy.

The ECOAQUA guidelines can be consulted here.

The guidelines provide an overview of the environmental, social and economic characteristics of ORs and OCTs, describe the main bottlenecks encountered in each thematic area and provides information on the state of the art for each of them.

Finally, the document provides a set of recommendations, based on robust scientific information, to promote Sustainable Aquaculture practices in the EU Overseas.
