During the timespan of the 2004-2006 project, a series of thematic workshops were organised with the following objectives:
- to formulate very specific recommendations (for the EC) on future directions in research, trade and production between the two regions: Asia and Europe;
- to forge new alliances or reinforce existing ones between EU and Asia partners for joint research, trade policies and production methods.
To do so, the workshops brought together a selection of key players from both regions and from the different sectors involved (academic, industry, policy making, ...) to think together and reach consensus on tangible action points.
The topics of the thematic workshops reflected the main issues of concern for the further successful development of aquaculture in both regions:
