The NPA Annual Conference 2017 addressed Blue Growth as its main theme. The programme not only focuses on the Arctic, but also aims to contribute to the Atlantic Strategy. The conference addressed such topics as entrepreneurship and innovation related to fisheries and aquaculture, environmental protection and maritime and coastal tourism.
Galway located on the Atlantic coast was a fitting location. The venue was the Marine Institute, which plays a national coordinating role in the Atlantic Strategy.
Presentations are available below.
A short report and pictures will follow soon.
