Hide / Show Abstract

In 2009 the OECD conducted a survey on ‘Conditions for establishing aquaculture production sites in OECD countries’. The questionnaire aimed to capture main fieatures of the regulatory architecture for aquaculture and to identify areas for improvement. The findings from the survey, integrated with relevant literature, are distilled in key messages to policy makers. These messages focus on (i) the need to simplified regulation and procedures in terms of access to and operation of production sites, (ii) the added value of stakeholder consultation in developing regulation and (ii) the importance of economic incentives.
