Scientific Opinion on Food from the Oceans


This Scientific Opinion responds to a request from the European Commission for scientific advice on how more food and biomass can be obtained from the oceans in a way that does not deprive future generations of their benefits. The Scientific Opinion is based on a detailed analysis of publicly-available scientific evidence and literature as well as close consultation with the scientific community. In particular, it is informed by an accompanying Evidence Review Report produced by SAPEA, an independent, Horizon-2020-funded consortium of European scientific academy networks. This Scientific Opinion will inform preparation for the successor of the present European Maritime and Fisheries Fund and, more broadly, policy development and implementation in the coming years to help increase responsible harvesting of food from the ocean.
