Through AQUA-LIT, Nausicaá has contributed its experience as a catalyst and creator of dialogue between scientists, professionals and the general public. Nausicaá's expertise is sought
- to create a methodology for the impact study: interviews with fish farmers. This follows on from work previously initiated in the Sea For Society and Marina projects, which combined research and innovation.
- to organise "Learning Labs" based on this methodology in Germany, Belgium and Spain, in three basins: the English Channel-North Sea, the Baltic Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.
They allowed stakeholders from the entire aquaculture sector to discuss and more effectively share their knowledge and expertise.
The results have been compiled into a collection of tools and best practices, as well as a smartphone application.
Nausicaá has also produced a sustainability plan to ensure that the results of the project continue to be used and developed in the future.
