Spain's Minister of Agriculture, Food and Environment, MAGRAM, Isabel Garcia Tejerina, announced that 421 million Euros will be allocated to the Multiannual Aquaculture Strategic Plan 2014/2020. The plan outlines how aquaculture will be conducted in coming years in the framework of the new EU Common Fisheries Policy (CFP) and the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund (EMFF).

    Just consider the content of the article.

    Shall we consider that the National Advisory Board for Mariculture (Jacumar) and the National Advisory Board of Continental Harvests (Jacucon) already exist?

    And how much will the coordinated monitoring committee and the three working groups cost? €420 million? All those salaries, holidays, expenses, benefits, siestas, sangria. Isn't spain supposed to be broke? Is this money coming from the Rajoy slush fund? And doesn't spain already have aquaculture? Commonly known as illegally fishing and poaching in British Gibraltar Territorial Waters?

    I hear there's a new plan. Given the illegal poaching activity that takes place in BGTW at the end of Gibraltar's runway, British aircraft will now defend Gibraltar resources by dropping a bomb as they take off. It is hoped that some bombs will overshoot and hit Algeciras!

    What the “Hell” is “Aquaculture”. Does it mean fish and shellfish farming ?
    Fresh water trout farms.? Demersel and pelagic fishing ?
    The article is the usual verbose press release saying nothing !

    They could probably just run back in forth with an outboard off the coast and chop up all the African migrant bodies floating around.
    Cheap fish food

    Oh dear me , please allow me to educate you , my ignorant British thugs

    The Aquafresh industry in Spain refers mainly to the fishing farm industry from Galicia ( North West of Spain by the way....) , all those lovely Molluscs, and in particularly mussels, you see at the UK supermarkets and you have no idea what to do with they are from Spain mainly .....

    Top 5 exports of the falklands/Malvinas.

    #1 Mollusks (75%).

    Top 5 export destinations.

    #1 Spain (74%).

    No need to import those extremely vital mollusks now.

    The money will never materialise until it's in the pockets of the 'ruling party'.

    I thought most of the Spanish aquatic life was toad-like if Gollum2 is anything to go by.

    What has this got to do with Spain importing “Scampi” from Scotland ?
    #10 did not mention the Falklands and I did not mention the Falklands, so what is your very obscure point ?

    well Ill take it your not talking to yourself.

    #13 did not mention Scampi and I did not mention Scotland. So whats your very obscure problem ?

    If Spain produces its own mollusks (and jobs in aquaculture btw) then it wont have much need of imported mollusks (or labor )now will it, that should have an interesting consequence in the falklands/malvinas.
    Given 75% of kel?ite exports go to Spain and 74% of the colony's exports are mollusks.

    @16 Vestige

    There is nothing about creating new jobs, or expanded production.

    This is an existing fishery, and Spain's appetite for seafood is becoming harder and harder to fullfil, with traditional fish stocks declining.

    In fact, the idea of “managing” a fishery usually involves monitoring fish stocks and fishing practices, to ensure there is no “overfishing” or depletion of the resource.

    It's more likely that Spain will need more and more seafood from the Falklands and others.

    Why would you say otherwise?
