COFASP Foresight study

The COFASP foresight study was implemented between September 2013 and June 2014 by the European Fisheries and Aquaculture Research Organisation (EFARO). The aim of the study was to develop a research agenda defining the research required in the medium term (15 years) to enable a sustainable exploitation and farming and retailing of aquatic resources.

A large group of stakeholders was involved in this process. In three workshops we looked at how the factors might develop in the future and what research is needed to support these developments.
