  • OATP (Evaluation of the promotion of Offshore Aquaculture Through a Technology Platform)

    Jackson, D.; Drumm, A.; Fredheim, A.; Lader, P.; Fernáandez Otero, R.; Marine Institute; SINTEF Fisheries and Aquaculture Ltd.; Centro Technologico del Mar, Fundacion CETMAR (Marine Institute, 2011)
    This is the final report of the project OATP which investigated the opportunity and usefulness for the aquaculture industry to promote offshore aquaculture through a technological platform. The report is divided into five sections and begins with an executive summary of the project. In section two it discusses the European aquaculture sector including vision, strengths and gaps. The third section involves stakeholder consultation feedback, touching on potential species, regulation, planning frameworks, safety, environmental considerations and technology involved. Section four offers recommendations for stakeholders, covering ethical issues, potential species, regulation, planning, safety and environment as well. The fifth and last section features a sector overview by country and report appendices.
  • The National Surveillance Monitoring Programme for Residues in Farmed Fish

    Marine Institute (Marine Institute, 2015)
    All European Member States have a responsibility to monitor the use of veterinary medicines in food producing animals, to ensure that produce from these animals do not contain residues that could be harmful to consumers. It is a requirement to implement surveillance monitoring in accordance with the Residues Directive (Directive 96/23/EC) and to have in place national plans (National Residues Control Plan-NRCP) for the monitoring of certain chemical substances and residues in a range of food producing species and products e.g. cattle, pigs, sheep, farmed finfish. The National Residues Control Plan for Aquaculture in Ireland is specifically for farmed finfish and forms part of the overall National Residue Control Plan.
