This project aims to explore the need for legislation to promote sustainable innovation in aquaculture.
Breeding companies, marine bioprospecting institutions and investors in genetic engineering need protection of their improved genetic material to assure revenues from innovation and investment. At the same time, fish farmers and breeding companies need access to marine genetic resources for food production and further breeding, development and sustainable use.
The project aims at identifying the specific problems and possible solutions for legal regulation of access to aquatic genetic resources and protection of the results of research and development of genetic resources in aquaculture: Access to and legal protection of salmon, cod and tilapia genetic resources.
