Who we are
TAPAS is a four-year EU Horizon 2020 collaborative research project, which began in March 2016. It aims to promote and consolidate the environmental sustainability of the European aquaculture. Aquaculture is the fastest growing food production sector in the world. However, the EU self-sufficiency in terms of seafood is low, with nearly 70% of the seafood consumed being imported. To turn this situation, EU member states prepared national strategies for an ambitious 25% growth by 2020. The TAPAS project will provide scientific research data to support this action.
