Organic aquaculture refers to the process of cultivating aquatic species without using synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, herbices, GMOs in stocking and feeding material and focusing on the vegetable-based feed ingredients and additives such as soybean, corn, fish oil, fish meal, etc. Organic aquaculture practices offer a wide variety of nutritional, growth-promoting, and immune-resistant benefits to the farmed aquatic animals. Furthermore, they also help in maintaining a viable and sustainable aquatic ecosystem by limiting the introduction of harmful substances. As a result, organic aquaculture practices are extensively adopted for cultivating various aquatic species, including trout, mussels, salmon, oyster, carp, etc.
In Europe, the growing consumer concerns towards the high prevalence of numerous pathogens present in conventionally cultured seafood products are primarily augmenting the market for organic aquaculture practices. Additionally, the rising consumer disposable income levels along with their improving living standards are further catalyzing the per capita expenditures on premium seafood products, mainly including organically-sourced variants. Moreover, the growing demand for organic fish oil across several sectors, including pharmaceuticals, food and beverages, nutraceuticals, etc., is also driving the market growth in Europe. Besides this, the rising awareness among breeders towards the long-term and sustainable benefits of adopting organic aquaculture practices is further bolstering the demand for organic aquafeed. Moreover, the European Commission is constantly focusing to reduce the adverse impact of chemical-based aquaculture methods on marine and freshwater ecosystems, thereby fueling the market growth. Apart from this, the increasing demand for canned and frozen organic seafood variants will continue to drive the market for organic aquaculture in Europe over the coming years.
