  • 09:45 - 11:15 Sustainable aquaculture in America: current status and feedback Industrial fishing for feed and aquaculture play a major role in the marine economy. With the growing market for fish-based resources growing globally, what can we learn from the system currently installed and running in Chile?

  • 11:45 - 13:00 Social and economic development in Marine Protected Areas Increasingly, areas of biological significance are given ‘paper’ protected status. However, these sites sometimes do not take sufficiently into account the local economy and communities.

How can we improve the relationship between ecological and development of economic activities such as tourism or marine energies?
