Workshop on Policy Instruments for Blue Mussels
SLU hosted a workshop on how policy instruments for blue mussels should be designed to maximize the environmental benefits.
On the 9th of February, Katarina Elofsson (SLU) recently organized and hosted a workshop at the KSLA in Stockholm. This workshop was organized within the framework of four EU-projects: NutriTrade, Baltic Blue Growth, BALTCOAST and OPTIMUS. This workshop included participants across organizations from Sweden, Denmark and Finland within various municipalities, research institutes and academic institutions.
Subjects covered from the presentations ranged a wide variety of issues, including uncertainties within mussel production, economic compensation and financing mechanisms for mussel farmers, enhanced dialogue and collaboration with industry and politicians as well as comparing the performance of mussel production against other abatement measures within the Baltic Sea.
