Guidance on a Better Integration of Aquaculture, Fisheries, and other Activities in the Coastal Zone: from tools to practical examples provides a comprehensive assessment of the conflicts and synergies between fisheries, aquaculture and other activities in the coastal zones of six case study areas: Hardangarfjord (Norway); Atlantic coast areas (Ireland and France); the Adriatic Sea coast (Italy); the Algarve coast (Portugal); the Coastal North Sea (Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands); and the Baltic Sea (Finland).
The publication arises from the FP7-funded COEXIST project, which aimed to provide a roadmap for achieving better integration, sustainability and cooperation across the diverse activities now taking place in the European coastal zone. The project has now finished and the results will provide a framework to assist with the resolution of the existing and future conflicts related to interactions between aquaculture, fisheries and other sectors, and will contribute to the sustainable development of coastal zones at local and regional levels.
Guidance on a Better Integration of Aquaculture, Fisheries, and other Activities in the Coastal Zone: from tools to practical examples is a major output of the project and will be of significant interest to stakeholders in aquaculture, fisheries, coastal zone management, spatial planning, tourism, and energy, as well as policy makers.
