Fish or Seafood. Feeding humanity while maintaining nature's balance


In Europe, the new Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) aims to achieve just that by making sure that EU citizens are provided with a stable, secure and healthy food supply over the long term with a prosperous fishing sector. Tackling overfishing and promoting aquaculture are two cornerstones of this vision — also supported by investment under FP7 and Horizon 2020. For EU-funded researchers, priorities include competitive and environmentally-friendly fisheries and aquaculture, cross-cutting marine research, animal welfare and the preservation of marine biodiversity.

This edition of the Research*EU magazine puts some of the most recent and representative projects under the spotlight, with one main underlying question: are we any closer to striking a sustainable balance between fish preservation and easy access to seafood? This special feature is followed by the usual eight sections providing insights into biology and medicine, social sciences and humanities, energy and transport, the environment, IT and telecommunications, industrial technologies, food and agriculture, and physics and mathematics, along with a list of upcoming events hosted by or involving EU-funded research projects.
