About This European Environment Agency report, Seafood in Europe, is a first contribution to the collective endeavour of rethinking Europe's food system for sustainability goals, as recently articulated globally in the Sustainable Development Goals (aimed at 'Transforming our world') and in Europe with the implementation of the 7th Environment Action Programme (aimed at 'Living well, within the limits of our planet'). The report's intended readership includes policy actors, practitioners and researchers who are thinking about sustainability in food, and who are in a position to act strategically. It is also aimed at professionals in the fields of food security and marine environmental sustainability. With a focus on seafood, the analysis builds on a food system approach from which it explores the knowledge base on food systems and on the seafood that the EU produces, trades and consumes. It then further assesses the implications of such a food system analysis for EU policy and knowledge development, by identifying three complementary pathways in the current EU policy framework related to food, seafood and healthy seas, and its knowledge base, which can help support a more functional system.
