The Second Annual TAPAS meeting was held in Velence, Hungary last week. Prior to the meeting there were two workshops. One workshop focused on the models and tools that are being evaluated and developed for ecotoxicological risk assessment, environmental impact, site selection and planning. The second workshop considered the models and approaches used for assessment of ecosystem services. During the Annual Meeting work package leaders provided updates on progress, future plans and also outlined how the work will contribute to the aquaculture sustainability toolbox that is being developed within the project.
