ICA - Flanders

International Coordination Action on Aquaculture

Since its establishment in 2003, the ASEM Aquaculture Platform has received substantial funding from the Flemish Government. This may seem surprising, given the limited importance of the Belgian aquaculture industry but Belgium and Flanders have always played a leading role in aquaculture research and education and have occupied a pivotal role as coordinator or partner in international networks.
Since 2008 the Flemish Research Foundation supports the permanent secretariat of the ASEM Aquaculture Platform at Ghent University.
