Phycomorph European Guidelines for a Sustainable Seaweeds Aquaculture - Pegasus

Seaweeds are increasingly used as a source of food or for the production of cosmetics, medicines and fertilisers. Worldwide the annual production increase of about 7 per cent. The demands for high-value seaweed-derived compounds is increasing in Europe and importation is high.

 

However, Europe lags behind Asian countries despite its largest exclusive economic zone, its high seaweed biodiversity, and its international leadership in fundamental research on macroalgae

 

A working group of the COST Action FA1406 PHYCOMORPH will publish soon the PEGASUS guidelines (technical document) that propose balanced and long-term recommendations based on a detailed analysis of current seaweed aquaculture practices, regulations, health benefits and consumer demands, with a focus on the protection of the marine environment.

What is an Intergroup?

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup is one of the 28 Intergroups that were approved on 11 December 2014 by the Conference of Presidents. Intergroups can be formed by MEPs from any political group and any parliamentary committee with a view to holding informal exchanges of views on particular issues and to promoting contact between MEPs and civil society.

The Seas, Rivers, Islands and Coastal Areas Intergroup brings together more than 80 MEPs from six different political groups and from 19 Member States.

Intergroups are not Parliament bodies and therefore may not express Parliament's opinion.

Intergroups are subject to internal rules adopted by the Conference of Presidents on 16 December 1999 (last updated on 11 September 2014), which set out the conditions under which intergroups may be established at the beginning of each parliamentary term and their operating rules.
