'Mussel farming in the Baltic Sea as an environmental measure - new positive data' A factsheet from SLU Aquaculture in collaboration with SUBMARINER Network
New results show that mussel farms in the Baltic Sea can make a significant contribution to reducing eutrophication while supporting the circular economy and circular food production. In order to take mussel farming to the next step, further improvements to farm technology are required, larger farms must be implemented, and new knowledge is needed about how harvested mussels can be efficiently reintroduced back into the food system.
Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences, in cooperation with the SUBMARINER Network, has prepared a policy brief and factsheet with information from the following projects:
- Baltic Blue Growth, Interreg Baltic Sea Region Project 2016-2019
- NutriTrade, Interreg Central Baltic project 2015 – 2018.
- Rich Water, EU Life project 2016 – 2024.
