Aquaculture is projected to be the prime source of seafood and protein by 2030, as demand grows and wild capture fisheries diminish. The negative effects of overfishing and of fishing methods that are hazardous for the environment can only be reversed with the scientific, environmentally-sound, solutions offered by aquaculture.
The advancement of the aquaculture industry is inseparably linked to its deep commitment to the marine environment. By establishing rules for sustainable development and wild capture quotas, we can guarantee our seas may continue to generously offer man their treasure for generations to come.
HAPO Members’ preventive measures help attain the goal set by our sustainable strategy: to keep the waters of our farms and the surrounding coastline pristine.
Our facilities operate in accordance with environmental laws and the regulations put forward by the Hellenic Ministries of Environment & Energy and Agricultural Development & Food, as well as strict European Union guidelines. By adhering to best aquaculture practices and a thorough system of traceability from sea to plate, complying with all globally accredited certification schemes, controlling the fish farming process and monitoring our environmental footprint, our sustainable development goals are the blueprint for achieving a better future for all.
