The Brussels Briefing on the topic of “Fish-farming: The new driver of the blue economy” was held on 3rd of July, at the ACP Secretariat in Brussels.
More than 70 participants discussed successes and shared lessons from the field of fish-farming, by emphasizing its role for the growth of the blue-economies of the ACP countries.
