Production of freshwater fish is a major branch of European aquaculture. The outcome of this workshop is to provide key information and strategic advice on how to fulfil the production potential of the sector to: (i) policy-makers, administrators and legislators; (ii) future investors; (iii) consumers; and, particularly, (iv) producers. Trout and carp dominate European aquaculture, whereas there are other promising candidates for culture that have not been profitably exploited.The growing ornamental fish production (goldfish, koi and some native species) is a special segment of European aquaculture.
