COST Action FA1406 (2015-2019)

Preparation of European Seaweed Aquaculture Guidelines ("PEGASUS")

Phycomorph is preparing guidelines for sustainable seaweed aquaculture in Europe. Which environmental impact, which required technological development, which economical forecast, and very importantly at the ecological level, how applied and fundamental research will bring the relevant knowledge to manage the genetic resources and identify the environmental factors impacting seaweed growth and reproduction in the field. All these challenges will be addressed in the guidelines, together with recommandations for policy-makers, industrial stake-holders and European citizens eager to jointly participate in the development of this sector in a sustainable way.
