Sustainable aquaculture: the United Kingdom multiannual national plan (MANP)

The plan sets out how the UK will tackle 4 key aquaculture growth challenges using support from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.



The plan details how the UK government will encourage growth in the aquaculture sector. This will be done using existing initiatives and targeted support from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).

It’s been produced in response to a requirement of the reformed Common Fisheries Policy (CFP).

The EU Commission intends to use these plans to coordinate knowledge exchange among member states. It will also make sure that EMFF funding supports the MANP priorities.
