MedAID: A project to foster Mediterranean Aquaculture

Mediterranean Aquaculture Integrated Development is a four-year project (2017-2021) financed by the Horizon 2020 Research and Innovation programme of the EU. MedAID’s main goal is to enhance the competitivity and sustainability of the Mediterranean marine aquaculture sector, focusing on the two main species farmed, sea bass and sea bream.

•    To enhance the competitivity and sustainability of the Mediterranean aquaculture sector throughout the value chain.
•    To increase the technical productivity and economic performance of the sector.
•    To achieve more responsible consumption and build a social reputation.

The project will provide integrated solutions for the main technical industrial bottlenecks throughout the value chain.
MedAID will combine applied biological and socioeconomic science to improve the industry’s competitivity, and will provide strategies to optimise the production, marketing, business, image and governance of the aquaculture sector.

MedAID is made up of a consortium of 34 partners from 13 countries across the Mediterranean region and Europe, with different profiles that will interact with each other to provide applied research results and recommendations for improving zootechnical performance, business plans and governance. The project is coordinated by the Mediterranean Agronomic Institute of Zaragoza (IAMZ-CIHEAM) with the collaboration of IRTA.
