Pilot Action information leaflets
As part of the INTEGRATE Project’s outreach to a wider public activities, we are creating a suite of promotional material to help inform a range of stakeholders about different aspects of eco-efficient practices in aquaculture. We hope to demonstrate that IMTA can be a step towards a greener Atlantic aquaculture industry, producing safe and healthy food and valuable jobs.
Our new leaflets, each describing one of our 3 pilot actions, are now available for download:
