Have your say on EU guidelines for the sustainable development of aquaculture
The review of the guidelines is focussed on aligning it with the Farm to Fork Strategy. As part of the review, the Commission has launched a public consultation, seeking input from citizens and organisations in order to soundcheck their ideas for the updated version of the SAGs before they are being published. The Commission is already working on updating the SAGs. This means that the consultation is meant to help confirm and adjust the content, purpose and scope of the new SAGs.
This consultation is open from now until 27 October 2020 (midnight Brussels time).

By the end of the year, the Commission will finalise the guidelines. Once finished, these guidelines will then be used as guidance for the EU Member States to develop their aquaculture sector, and for defining priorities in the EU’s subsidy system, sectoral support activities, and research funding programmes.
