ICES work on aquaculture is part of a wider portfolio of work that seeks to advance and share scientific understanding of marine ecosystems and the services they provide, and to use this knowledge to generate state-of-the-art advice for meeting conservation, management, and sustainability goals. ICES has decided to establish aquaculture overviews, which will: i) summarize regional and temporal information on aquaculture activities, practices, and production of thecultured taxa; ii) describe the relevant policy and legal foundation; iii) consider the environmental and socio-economic interactions of aquaculture activities and practices; iv) provide insights on the interaction of environmental, economic, and social drivers; and v) consider future projections and emerging threats and opportunities. The Workshop on Norwegian Sea Aquaculture Overview (WKNORAO) was established to assemble and synthesize the data and information for the Norwegian Sea ecoregion aquaculture overview, identify the gaps and agree on the next steps to complete the draft overview.
