Series: General Fisheries Commision for the Mediterranean (GFCM): Studies and Reviews

The principal objective of the FAO AdriaMed Expert Consultation 'Interactions between Aquaculture and Capture Fisheries' (Rome, 5-7 November 2003) was to explore the main issues dealing with interactions between aquaculture and capture fisheries by using the existing knowledge available at the Adriatic basin level. This initiative would represent a contribution at subregional level towards the establishment and implementation of the principles of the FAO Code of Conduct for Responsible Fisheries concerning aquaculture activities.

A preliminary matrix for the identification of indicators emerged and was drafted from comments made by the experts from the Adriatic present at the meeting. This matrix represents a first step towards the definition of a set of indicators to monitor the relationship between aquaculture and capture fisheries in the Adriatic Region following the criteria for sustainability. Moreover, the expert consultation adopted a series of recommendations that could be directed to the Adriatic countries underlining that positive and negative interactions between aquaculture and capture fisheries must be considered in the context of integrated coastal zone management.
