EATiP and the Copernicus Marine Service organized a joint event in Athens to explore the application possibilities of the available open-access satellite and in-situ marine data for the aquaculture sector. About 70 participants from all over Europe joined the workshop and training event to learn more about the sector’s need for data when operating at sea and about how Copernicus Marine Service might contribute to this. Representatives from the European Commission supported the initiative which aligns well with the ongoing processes on the review of the Strategic Guidelines for the Development of Sustainable Aquaculture and the work on defining a new mission for healthy oceans and seas.
The presentation of the services and models, and of existing examples provided by the Copernicus team members and experienced users provided the attendants with a better understanding of the opportunities the Service can provide.
All presentations from the event are now available here. Also, a report with the workshop conclusions will soon be published.
