Aquaculture in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania

Since the beginning of this millennium, the state government has been intensively supporting and promoting aquaculture in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. These efforts have enabled the development of a promising infrastructure in the field of aquaculture in recent years. Producers, processing companies and research institutions in the state are now working together successfully. Invest in MV and Rostock Business impressively highlight the first successes of this cooperation in their aquaculture brochure.
