Since 2014, DG MARE of the European Commission leads the project “Farmed in EU” to promote European aquaculture.
The developed pedagogic kit is available in 24 EU languages. It was tested in 2015 in 20 schools of 10 Member States, including the High School of the Sea in Sète in France where Mrs Sylvie MIMOSA is teaching. In Paris, the 3rd of March during the SIA, the international fair for agriculture, she presented the positive outcomes of this kit during the round table of DG MARE “Teaching European aquaculture “.
Professionals have greeted as “an experience to multiply widely! “. This will be done next March 22 in Paris during the national seminar on European projects of France EUROPEA. Mrs MIMOSA will lead, with this kit, a workshop to demonstrate that aquaculture is a major and exemplary environmental player. Production methods ensure gustative and sanitary quality, traceability and respect for biodiversity. Training of future aquacultural professionals innovates with certification of learning units by using ECVET system promoted by France EUROPEA and EUROPEA International ( www.FranceEUROPEA.eu ) ( www.EUROPEA.org ).
