Defining Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture : a consensus

Abstract : Integrated Multi-Trophic Aquaculture (IMTA) systems are a circular economy paradigm that contribute towards making aquaculture more sustainable and competitive. However, despite being encouraged by European Union (EU) policies such as the Blue Growth Strategy, the Atlantic Action Plan and RIS3, there are socio-economic, administrative and regulatory bottlenecks hampering the uptake of IMTA on an industrial scale. To overcome these, eight organisations from Spain, Portugal, France, Ireland, and the United Kingdom have partnered up to implement the INTEGRATE project (Integrate Aquaculture: an eco-innovative solution to foster sustainability in the Atlantic Area). Funded by the ERDF through the Interreg Atlantic Area Programme, the project started in 2017 and will nalise in May 2020.
