France: A case study on aquaculture governance

French aquaculture is dominated by small to medium enterprises producing shellfish; in particular oysters and mussels. In fact, 85% of the total European oysters come from France and the remaining production is absorbed by the domestic market. In addition to shellfish, France also farms marine and freshwater species, including salmon, trout, sea bass and sea bream and increasingly sturgeon for caviar production.
